he symptoms of a seizure can be very different from person to person, or even seizure to seizure. Some people lose consciousness and fall down with movements of the entire body. Once called "grand mal", most doctors now call these "generalized seizures" since large parts of the brain are affected by the seizure activity. Some seizures are more subtle, however, and produce only some involuntary movement of a limb, tingling, confusion or repetitive behavior. Consciousness and memory are not always impaired. There can be an "aura" that warns the person that a seizure is starting. These subjective experiences can be a funny feeling, emotion, memory, or even a hallucination. Almost any kind of mental experience is possible depending on where in the brain the seizure starts.
