Were you looking for information about Epilepsy? Epilapsy is a common misspelling of epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a disorder in which neurons in the brain signal abnormally, resulting in convulsions, sensory disturbances, or losses of consciousness known as seizures. There is currently no cure for epilepsy. Modern medicines and surgical techniques can control seizures in about 80 percent of people diagnosed with epilepsy; however, about 20 percent of people with epilepsy have what is known as intractable epilepsy, meaning they continue to experience seizures even with the best available treatment. While the risk of seizures restricts independence and recreational activities for many people with epilepsy, many other people with the condition lead productive and outwardly normal lives.
