OBJECTIVE Epilepsy can be considered as a result of the imbalance of the excitatory and inhibitory processes. Therefore, the artificial enhancement of the activity of brain inhibitory mechanisms might lead to a beneficial therapeutic effect for intractable epilepsy patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Studies of the inhibitory effects of electrical stimulation(More)
The effects of electrostimulation of caput nuclei caudati (CNC) were investigated in 57 patients. Long-term implanted multicontact electrodes were used in 38 patients. In 23 cases, completely implanted neurostimulators and in the remaining 15 cases externalized electrodes were used. Investigations demonstrated that a low-frequency (4-6 Hz) stimulation of(More)
