What happens in a seizure?
Excerpt from Epilepsy Canada

Special cells called neurons help to form an electrical and chemical network in the brain. Under normal conditions, electrical signals move along these neurons. They influence the release of different chemicals which further influence the electrical activity of subsequent neurons. Many external and internal influences can cause abnormal activities in the electrical signals of these neurons. A change in the regular brain electrical activity may result in a seizure. Repeated seizure events may be a sign of epilepsy. (Note: while all forms of epilepsy are characterised by some form of seizure disorder, not all seizure disorders are indicative of epilepsy.)
