Partial Seizures (Focal Seizures) Guide – 10 Facts to Know

What Is a Partial Seizure?

Partial or focal seizures are a form of seizures characterized by involuntary changes in movement or consciousness in a small area of the brain. Unlike other types, abnormal electrical activity in partial seizures only affect a specific region instead of spreading to other parts. In some cases, this condition starts at a small point and quickly involves both brain’s sides. However, it is still categorized as a partial seizure when the electrical activity comes from a region.
