, also called partial epilepsy
, is a seizure disorder in which seizures are preceded by an isolated disturbance of a cerebral
function. Such disturbances may include a twitching of a part of the body, such as a limb; a deceptive or illusory sensation or feeling, or some other mental disturbance. It is a subtype of epilepsy
The cause of the isolated disturbances results from the electrical signals that cause the seizure emanating from a specific part of the brain.
