Absence seizures usually occur in children between ages 4 to 14 (Hopkins Hospital). Spontaneous remission occurs in 65–70% of patients during adolescence (Medicine Central).

My question is what takes place biologically that allows you to 'grow out of them?' Is it synapse pruning in the brain or something? I have looked everywhere online but can't seem to understand the physiology of how one grows out of seizures.

  • $\begingroup$ @anongoodnurse - absolutely not - but, migrating a question should be done on the basis of being explicitly offtopic. In this case I am not doubting the expertise on Health; rather I am questioning this being offtopic here. $\endgroup$ – AliceD Oct 14 '17 at 21:28
