Photosensitive epilepsy is where someone has seizures that are triggered by flashing or flickering lights, or patterns. Any type of seizure could be triggered but tonic-clonic seizures are the most common. There are 2 groups of people who have photosensitive epilepsy: People who only have seizures triggered by flashing or flickering lights, or.

Photosensitive epilepsy is a condition whereby symptoms can result from exposure to certain visual stimuli, predominantly related to light. The development of epilepsy can stem from a specific cause such as head or brain trauma as well as a stroke, but the majority—including photosensitivity—is believed to have a genetic link.

May 4, - Photosensitive reflex epilepsy (PSE),(light induced seizures formerly known as photogenic epilepsy and also known as visual sensitive epilepsy, photic induced seizures, or visually induced seizures from bright lights or flashing lights greater than 3Hz, or 3 flashes per second, especially red flashing lights),information from a variety of sourcesK pins.

Photosensitive epilepsy is a type of epilepsy we call reflex epilepsy and is seen in less than 5% of people with epilepsy. It is when seizures are triggered by flashing or flickering lights, or by certain geometric shapes or patterns. About 4% of patients with epilepsy are susceptible to visually induced seizures.

The visual stimulation responsible includes both flickering light and stationary steadily illuminated patterns, usually of stripes. The seizures can start in the visual cortex of one cerebral hemisphere, or both hemispheres independently. The seizures occur when normal physiological excitation from.

Photosensitive seizures are triggered by flashing or flickering lights. These seizures can also be triggered by certain patterns such as stripes. Photosensitive seizures can fall under several categories, including tonic-clonic, absence, myoclonic and focal seizures. The prognosis for control of seizures induced by visual stimulation is generally very good, [67,93,94,95,96,97] especially in pure photosensitive epilepsy and juvenile myoclonic epilepsy in which.

Photosensitive Epilepsy. Photosensitive Epilepsy is a relatively rare condition, affecting approximately 1 person in Persons with this condition are susceptible to seizures evoked by flickering lights, such as those produced by a light/sound machine. The information included here on photosensitive epilepsy is mostly from the book.

There are a number of things that could trigger a photosensitive seizure. Because people’s sensitivities are so individual, not everything will affect every person with photosensitive epilepsy. The following are some of the things that people ask us about: UK law says that these lights mustn’t flash at less than one or more than 4 flashes a.

A seizure is the manifestation of an abnormal, hypersynchronous discharge of a population of cortical neurons. This discharge may produce subjective symptoms or objective signs, in which case it is a clinical seizure, or it may be apparent only on an electroencephalogram (EEG), in which case it is an electrographic (or subclinical) seizure.
