Focal Epilepsy

Jump to: navigation, search

Focal Epilepsy (also called partial epilepsy) is a seizure disorder in which seizures are preceded by an isolated disturbance of a cerebral function. Such disturbances may include:

-A twitching of a part of the body such as a limb

-A deceptive or illusory sensation or feeling

-Some other mental disturbance

The cause of the isolated disturbances results from the electrical signals that cause the seizure emanating from a specific part of the brain.
