A seizure, characterized by abnormal and uncontrollable electrical brain activity, can lead to rapid or subacute onset of changes in behavior, consciousness, feelings, or memories. There are a number of etiologies in the differential diagnosis for a seizure, including convulsive syncope, rigors, movement disorders, sleep disorders, and psychogenic non-epileptic seizures—all of which may seem similar to the untrained observer. Antiepileptic drugs may be indicated for patients with persistent seizure activity or epilepsy, but it is important to understand the indications, mechanisms of action, and side effects of each agent.

By Robert H. N. on 06. October 2020 for Seizures

The speaker does not explain anything. He just names random stuff and says it is important.

I like that is the most precise information that you might need for solving clinical cases later in practice
