Generalized Seizures

Generalized Seizures

Generalized seizures affect both cerebral hemispheres (sides of the brain) from the beginning of the seizure. They produce loss of consciousness, either briefly or for a longer period of time, and are sub-categorized into several major types:


Generalized tonic clonic seizures (grand mal seizures)
Myoclonic Seizures
Atonic Seizures
Absence Seizures (petit mal)
