Epilepsy is a brain disorder causing recurring seizures or convulsions. As the National Institutes of Health’s Medline Plus website points out, the seizures happen when clusters of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain send out the wrong signals. During seizures, the site says, people may have strange sensations and emotions. They may also have violent muscle spasms or lose consciousness.
