A trauma to the brain can in fact cause a seizure disorder and or epilepsy. This is true whether the initial trauma was mild, moderate, or severe.
A seizure is an explosion in the brain. A person’s cerebral activity is regulated by electrical impulses which are sent when the nerves in the brain fire charges that pass from one nerve cell to another. When a seizure occurs, the nerve cells cease to fire properly and instead fire with sudden, short and intense energy.
Epilepsy is a recurrent condition of seizures. It is used to describe when someone has multiple seizures.
