DISCUSSION # 5 3 A seizure is defined as a, “time-limited event caused by excessive, hypersynchronous discharge of neurons in the brain”(Jarvis, 2016, p. 681). Seizures can be caused by many things such as, medication or drug overdose, alcohol intoxication as well as withdrawl, brain trauma, structural issues (tumors, blood, clot, and infection), hypernatremia and epilepsy. (Jarvis, 2016) The diagnosis of seizures and its cause can be tough to isolate since they are unpredictable. Migraine headaches are said to be seizures’s close cousin. Even thought they don’t seem alike it is believed that they orginate from the same type of disruptions in brain activity. (Michalowski, 2018) Migraine’s like seizures have many different triggers and are just as difficult to isolate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
