Infographic: Understanding the complexities of epilepsy

Epilepsy affects 2.2 million people in the U.S.

The neurological disorder often causes unexplained seizures. According to an infographic from Mount Sinai Medical Center, doctors and researchers don’t know what causes the abnormal electrical activity in the brain.

If a person experiences two or more seizures not caused by an illness or another trigger, he or she is considered to have epilepsy.

Those with an increased risk of the disorder may have:

  • Suffered a brain injury

  • Been exposed to toxics such as arsenic, lead or carbon monoxide

  • A family history of Alzheimer’s disease

  • Used certain medicines or recreational drugs

  • Been diagnosed with autism, cerebral palsy or other developmental disabilities

This infographic can help patients and medical professionals recognize symptoms of epilepsy and how it can be diagnosed:
