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.
