In brief: Deja vu
Deja vu is the sense that something which is actually unfamiliar, is familiar -- or has been experienced before.
Most people have had such experiences occasionally, but in more frequent occurrence it can be associated with temporal lob epilepsy. In them, it can happen just before a seizure. But, this experience does not have to mean any abnormal condition at all.
