What types of epilepsy or seizures are there?

Seizures come in two major types. One type comes from a very specific area of the brain and those kinds of seizures are called focal or partial seizures. The other type of seizure comes from everywhere in the brain at once and those types of seizures are called generalized seizures. That also applies to epilepsy: There are generalized epilepsies and focal epilepsies or localization-related epilepsies.
