Epilepsy is a chronic heterogenous condition in which patients experience recurrent and seemingly unprovoked seizures. Epilepsy is a common condition with about 46 million people worldwide suffering active epilepsy. Despite being common, classifying, diagnosing and treating epilepsy can be difficult.
