Centrencephalic Epilepsy

Centrencephalic epilepsy refers to a neurological disorder characterized by seizures and sometimes unconsciousness which can be traced to the center regions of the brain. Specifically, Wilder Penfield, an American-Canadian neurosurgeon, proposed “centrencephalic” as a seizure classification which arises from the brainstem, the part that includes the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata and is connected with the spinal cord.
