English term or phrase: staring spell
Humans and animals exposed to mercury develop unusual, abnormal, and “inappropriate” behaviors (Florentine and Sanfilippo, 1991). Rats exposed to mercury during gestation have exhibited stereotyped sniffing (Cuomo et al, 1984) and hyperactivity (Fredriksson et al, 1996). “Restlessness” has already been noted, and Davis et al (1994) found poor response inhibition in their human subjects; both of these behaviors are closely associated with ADHD in children. Babies and children with Hg poisoning exhibit agitation, crying for no observable reason, grimacing, and insomnia (Pierce et al, 1972; Snyder, 1972; Kark et al, 1971; Amin-Zaki, 1979; Florentine and Sanfilippo, 1991; Aronow and Fleischmann, 1976). An 18 month old toddler with otitis media, exposed to thimerosal in ear drops, had STARING SPELLS and unprovoked screaming episodes (Rohyans et al, 1984).

períodos de visión fija


Explanation:
El 'spell' en este caso es un rato, período, y no un hechizo o encanto

staring = mirar fijamente

You have to change it around a bit in Spanish.

crisis o ataque de ausencia


Explanation:
"Ausencias"

Otra forma de crisis generalizada, bastante frecuente, son las ausencias, antes llamadas petit mal (la tónico-clónica era llamada gran mal, pero esos términos ya no se usan). Estas crisis se dan en niños y adolescentes, principalmente, y suelen desaparecer con el tratamiento. Se caracterizan por ser episodios muy frecuentes, el paciente llega a tener 10 a 20 episodios por día, que consisten en una suspensión brusca muy breve (5 a 15 segundos aprox) de la conciencia. El niño deja la actividad que estaba realizando y queda completamente inmóvil, con la mirada fija, pudiendo haber una pequeña clonía de los párpados, para luego retomar lo que estaba haciendo al terminar la crisis. Las epilepsias que se manifiestan sólo como ausencias tienen relativamente buen pronóstico.

Las ausencias se deben a una descarga que invade rápidamente los hemisferios afectando la conciencia la cual es recuperada en pocos segundos gracias a mecanismos protectores efectivos que hacen que la crisis no se propague más allá. Este tipo de epilepsia es importante porque ocurre varias veces en el día y puede traer algunos riesgos, ya que si bien la conciencia se pierde tan solo por 15 segundos aprox, si esto ocurre cuando el niño va a cruzar la calle, le puede costar la vida.

Bueno, entonces quédense con estas dos formas de epilepsias generalizadas, las que tienen manifestaciones motoras: tónicas, clónicas y tónico-clónicas; y las ausencias

agree  xxxxxxleliadour: episodios de mirada ausente would be fine too; they are not necessarily epileptical seizures.. Perfect!
