Epilepsy is a neurological disorder marked by recurrent seizures that arise from abnormal brain electrical activity caused by imbalances in neurotransmitter levels or activity or imbalances or disruptions in signaling pathways regulating neuronal excitation. Neuroinflammation, a contributing factor, involves the release of factors from immune cells that compromise the integrity of the blood-brain barrier. This process can trigger or exacerbate epilepsy by disrupting synaptic function, heightening neuronal hyperexcitability, and inducing neuronal damage.
