Breaking Dawn Birthing Scene

Breaking Dawn Birthing Scene, Reports of the ‘Breaking Dawn’ birth scene spurring seizures in Twilight fans have landed photosensitive epilepsy in the spotlight.

Not since the Pokemon incident of 1997, in which more than 700 Japanese cartoon viewers were hospitalized, have strobe-light-induced seizures garnered so much attention.

“There are many, many things that can induce seizures,” said Dr. Dan Lowenstein, director of the University of California, San Francisco Epilepsy Center. “Certainly flashing lights are one trigger.”

Besides blood, the birth of Edward and Bella’s baby boasts flashing white light. Those flashes, at just the right frequency, can cause neurons in the brain to start firing in synch — a deviation from their usual chaos.

“When the brain is functioning normally, there are neurons firing all over the place,” said Lowenstein. “During a seizure, there’s an abnormal synchronization that we don’t usually have.”
