Brivaracetam will be administered to various age-based cohorts. Cohort 1: Subjects >=12 to <16 years; Cohort 2: Subjects >=6 to <12 years; Cohort 3: Subjects >=2 to <6 years; Cohort 4: Subjects 1 month to <2 years. Enrollment will be sequential by descending age beginning with Cohort 1. For each cohort, the first half will receive a 15-minute iv infusion. The Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) will then review safety and, as available, PK data to make the following recommendations: the progression of the current cohort (up to 2-minute iv bolus infusion) and progression to initiate enrollment in the preceding cohort.

- Incidence of adverse events throughout the study [ Time Frame: From Screening (Day -20 to -1) until last visit (up to day 68) ]An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment.
- Number of subject withdrawals due to AEs [ Time Frame: From Screening (Day -20 to -1) until last visit (up to day 68) ]An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment.
- Plasma concentration of brivaracetam (BRV) [ Time Frame: Blood samples will be collected <= 1 hour pre-initiation of intravenous (iv) BRV infusion and 15 min and 3 hours post-initiation of iv BRV infusion. ]Blood samples will be taken at indicated time points to determine brivaracetam (BRV) plasma concentration before, during, and after iv BRV administration.
