What is epilepsy? In the United States, 2.3 million people have epilepsy, a neurological condition that makes them susceptible to seizures. There are 181,000 new cases diagnosed each year.

Seizures range from a momentary disruption of the senses to brief periods of unconsciousness or staring to convulsions. Seizures are caused by a sudden change in how brain cells send electrical signals to each other.
