Seizures

The brain controls and regulates the body including; sensations, thoughts and emotions. It contains billions of nerve cells that communicate with each other through electrical signals. In a seizure, the brain sends out an abnormal burst of electrical signals. These signals can change a person’s movement, behaviour or state of awareness. A seizure is often very brief, lasting from a few seconds to a few minutes, while some seizures can last much longer.
