    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - There are many things that can induce seizures, and one of them is patterns of bright flashing lights in the retinas of the eye.

    People who are susceptible to this typically have a condition called photosensitive epilepsy, or PSE. The incidence of PSE in the general population is estimated at about 1 in 5,000 though scenes will not necessarily trigger seizures in everyone with PSE.

    Many people have made claims of having seizures while watching the latest 'Twilight' movie, the first installment of 'Breaking Dawn.'

    This week's Today's Health with Dr. T. Glenn Pait takes a look at PSE in relation to 'Breaking Dawn.'
