What is a seizure?

A seizure is like an electrical storm in the brain. The brain misfires in a way that causes the brain to not function correctly. Anyone can have a seizure when it is provoked, but with epilepsy, the seizures come out of the blue. About 10% of the population will have a seizure at some point in their life but only about 1% of the population has epilepsy (recurrent unprovoked seizures).
