Secondarily generalized seizure

Secondarily generalized seizure: Introduction

Secondarily generalized seizure: A partial seizure is an electrical disturbance that originates in only one part of the brain and resulting in symptoms related to the body functions or parts that are controlled by that part of the brain. During a partial seizure movement, sensations, feelings or emotions may be affected. When the partial spreads to both sides of the brain it is then called generalized seizures. These seizures usually only last a few minutes. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Secondarily generalized seizure is available below.
