The term “secondarily generalized seizure” refers to a generalized seizure that was initiated in a spatially localized epileptic focus and then spread to eventually involve the whole cortex. Clearly the occurrence of such a seizure implies that seizure activity must be capable of propagating throughout the brain. Along which pathways does this propagation occur?
