More than two million people in the United States have experienced an unprovoked seizure or been diagnosed with epilepsy, a seizure disorder. Epilepsy is a brain disorder that may develop because of an abnormality in brain wiring, an imbalance of neurotransmitters, or a combination of these factors. Although the condition cannot be cured, it does eventually go away for some people. For about 80 percent of those diagnosed with epilepsy, seizures can be controlled with modern medicines and surgical techniques.
