A seizure is an episodic alteration in motor activity, behavior, sensation, or autonomic function. It represents an abrupt change in brain function. The term epilepsy indicates recurring seizures without a simple discernible and reversible cause. Physiologically, a seizure is an abnormal, sudden, and excessive electric discharge of neurons (gray matter) that propagates down the neuronal processes (white matter) to affect end organs in a clinically measurable fashion. The International Classification of Epileptic Seizures is accepted as the contemporary standard ( JaMeJJl-l).
