19 Generalised epileptic seizures are now considered to originate at some point within, and rapidly engage, bilaterally distributed networks. Such bilateral networks can include cortical and subcortical structures, but do not necessarily include the entire cortex. Although individual seizure onsets can appear localised, the location and lateralisation are not consistent from one seizure to another. Generalised seizures can be asymmetric. 19 Focal epileptic seizures are now considered to originate primarily within networks limited to one cerebral hemisphere.
