Abstract: Reflex seizures refer to epileptic seizures evoked by a specific external stimulus or internal mental process or by activity of the patient. Approximately 5% of all seizures are reflex epilepsy. The most common precipitants are visual. A variety of somatosensory phenomena including thinking, reading, listening to music, and eating may also induce reflex seizures. In this review, the most common reflex epilepsies are discussed.
