What is Epilepsy?
Is there any treatment?
Once epilepsy is diagnosed, it is important to begin treatment as soon as possible. For about 80 percent of those diagnosed with epilepsy, seizures can be controlled with modern medicines and surgical techniques. Some antiepiletic drugs can interfere with the effectiveness of oral contraceptives. In 1997, the FDA approved the vagus nerve stimulator for use in people with seizures that are not well-controlled by medication.

Notice Concerning The Americans With Disabilities Act Amendments Act Of 2008
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendments Act of 2008 was signed into law on September 25, 2008 and becomes effective January 1, 2009. Because this law makes several significant changes, including changes to the definition of the term "disability," the EEOC will be evaluating the impact of these changes on this document and other publications. See the list of specific changes to the ADA made by the ADA Amendments Act.
INTRODUCTION
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Title I of the ADA covers employment by private employers with 15 or more employees as well as state and local government employers of the same size. Section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act provides the same protections for federal employees and applicants for federal employment. In addition, most states have their own laws prohibiting employment discrimination on the basis of disability. Some of these state laws may apply to smaller employers and provide protections in addition to those available under the ADA. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces the employment provisions of the ADA. This document explains how the ADA might apply to job applicants and employees with epilepsy.

Overview
Mayo Clinic is a world-leading institution in developing innovative ways to diagnose and treat epilepsy in children and adults. Epilepsy cannot be cured, but it may be controlled through medication or surgery. At Mayo, highly qualified experts from neurology, neurosurgery and other medical specialties work closely together to find the most appropriate treatment for patients with epilepsy. Each year, specialists in epilepsy treatment at Mayo Clinic's Arizona, Florida and Minnesota locations provide comprehensive care for more than 3,500 patients. Mayo Clinic's unique collaborative approach is essential to achieving optimal outcomes for patients with epilepsy.

What is a seizure?
The brain is the center that controls and regulates all voluntary and involuntary responses in the body. It consists of nerve cells that normally communicate with each other through electrical activity. A seizure occurs when part(s) of the brain receives a burst of abnormal electrical signals that temporarily interrupts normal electrical brain function. What are the different types of seizures?
There are several different types of seizures, including the following:
  • partial seizures
    Partial seizures take place when abnormal electrical brain function occurs in one or more areas of one side of the brain. In about one-third of people with partial seizures, the person may experience an aura before the seizure occurs. An aura is a strange feeling, either consisting of visual changes, hearing abnormalities, or changes in the sense of smell. Two types of partial seizures include the following: simple partial seizures
    The seizures typically last less than one minute.The person may show different symptoms depending upon which area of the brain is involved.If the abnormal electrical brain function is in the occipital lobe (the back part of the brain that is involved with vision), the person's sight may be altered.The person's muscles are typically more commonly affected. The seizure activity is limited to an isolated muscle group, such as the fingers, or to larger muscles in the arms and legs.Consciousness is not lost in this type of seizure. The person may also experience sweating, nausea, or become pale.

The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) and the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) work together to advance research and to improve the quality of life for those afflicted with epilepsy. The two organizations work in collaboration to raise awareness around the world and help to provide a broader understanding of the nature of epilepsy and the needs of persons with epilepsy.
The International League Against Epilepsy
Founded in 1909, the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) is the world’s preeminent association of physicians and other health professionals working towards a world where no persons' life is limited by Epilepsy. Its mission is to provide the highest quality of care and well-being for those afflicted with the condition and other related seizure disorders. The League aims:
  • To advance and disseminate knowledge about epilepsy To promote research, education and training To improve services and care for patients, especially by prevention, diagnosis and treatment
The International Bureau for Epilepsy
The International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) was established in 1961 as an organisation of laypersons and professionals interested in the medical and non-medical aspects of epilepsy. The IBE addresses such social problems as education, employment, insurance, driving licence restrictions and public awareness. The Bureau also works in close liaison with the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE), an organisation of medical professionals involved in the medical and scientific issues of epilepsy. IBE is funded mainly by membership dues from its chapters and by financial support from other contributors.

Seizure Symptoms
Seizure Symptoms: How to Assist the Victim
Medical Author: Benjamin C. Wedro, MD, FACEP, FAAEM
Medical Editor: Seizures occur because the brain becomes irritated and an "electrical storm" occurs. This "electrical storm" occurs because the normal connections between the cells in the brain do not function properly. This causes the brain to try to shut down because of the electrical surge. The muscle shaking occurs because the brain is ending out signals to every muscle group, asking them to contract. Most seizures are self-limiting and are followed by a so-called postictal period, in which the brain can be considered to "reboot and restart" all its programs, similar to a computer when it is rebooted.

Home Library Science Sci-Tech Encyclopedia Conditions in which there are recurrent seizures. Such conditions are also known as epilepsy; the isolated occurrence of a seizure , however, is not designated as epilepsy. A seizure ( ictus ) is an event in which there is a sudden alteration in function of nerve cells, most commonly involving excessive electrical activity of the cells. This sudden change in nerve cell function is usually relatively brief, lasting seconds to minutes. Soon after a seizure, the brain may function quite normally. The manifestation of a seizure varies depending on which area of the brain is involved. Focal motor epilepsy, temporal lobe seizures , grand mal, and generalized nonconvulsive seizures are the four common seizure types. See also Brain Nervous system (vertebrate) Focal motor epilepsy, also known as a simple partial seizure with motor symptoms, is manifested by uncontrolled rhythmic jerking of the face, arm, or leg, caused by excessive abnormal discharges of nerve cells within the area of the brain, which under usual circumstances controls movement in that part of the body.
