Increased neocortical spiking and surgical outcome after selective amygdalo-hippocampectomy
Abstract We studied the electrocorticogram (ECoG) before and immediately after transcortical selective amygdalo-hippocampectomy, prospectively in 13 consecutive patients and retrospectively in threeExpand

Glycosaminoglycan levels and proteoglycan expression are altered in the hippocampus of patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy
Extracellular matrix proteoglycans (PGs) and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) play a crucial role in cell differentiation and synaptogenesis by modulating neurite outgrowth. The chondroitin sulfateExpand

Long-term outcome after callosotomy or vagus nerve stimulation in consecutive prospective cohorts of children with Lennox–Gastaut or Lennox-like syndrome and non-specific MRI findings
PURPOSE There is currently no resective (potentially curative) surgical option that is useful in patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. Palliative procedures such as callosotomy (Cx), vagus nerveExpand
