In brief: Electric storm

The brain is controlled by electrical impulses.
These are usually well regulated and are very nicely controlled by brain circuits. When these impulses get out of control, then the brain reacts by producing dramatic behavioral events that are seen as seizures. If the region of irritation is from the temporal lobe, then the behavior may be very complex and difficult to manage.
