Epilepsy - seizure types in brief.

Epileptic seizures can be very different. It depends on where in the brain something is wrong. Epileptic seizures are divided into two main types:

Partial seizures

Here the attack comes from just a part of the cerebral cortex.
 

Generalized seizures:

Here the entire cerebral cortex is involved.


The attack arises in the middle of the brain and from
here spreads to the entire brain. The attack can arise on 
its own or follow a partial attack spreading to into
the middle of the brain.

I. Patial attack spreading
II. Generalized attack 
III. Patial attack localized

The attack arises somewhere in the cerebral cortex
and affects only the immediately surrounding areas.
The symptoms depend on which part of the
cerebral cortex is affected.

There are attacks which fall outside the two main types and there are attacks which resemble epileptic seizures, but are not.
