Focal seizures take place when abnormal electrical brain function occurs in one or more areas of one side of the brain. The types of focal seizures are listed below. Click the thumbnail of the EEG images to view the full-sized image.
Secondarily generalized seizures start as partial seizures, which are limited to one area of the brain. This phase is usually brief, and can sometimes not be detected. The seizure then spreads throughout the brain, becoming generalized. The convulsive phase usually lasts just a few minutes.
