The most eminent system of the body is the Nervous System that controls all the body activities. It comprehends two parts of the central nervous system: the spinal cord & brain, and the peripheral nervous system: additional neural parts. Every bodily function is systematized by the Nervous System, so any problem in it will affect the daily regime of the person.

It is a neural disorder in which the brain makes people suspected to have unusual sensations, seizures, and sometimes they lose consciousness. Prevalence of this disorder is present in all age groups. Statistics have shown that 2.2 million Americans are diagnosed with epilepsy.
