'''Consciousness''' describes a state where a person is aware of their surroundings and can respond to stimuli. Sleep is a normal state where a person is not conscious, but can still respond to certain stimuli, such as heavy touch, loud noises, or bright light. A person suffering a [[seizure]] also partially loses consciousness, although in some forms of seizure they may be aware of their surroundings. However, persons suffering a seizure are unable to respond to stimuli. Persons under general [[anesthetic|anesthesia]] are not conscious in order to prevent them from suffering [[pain]]. However, such persons can be brought back to consciousness by removing the application of the anesthetic.
