The term hippocampal sclerosis was originally used to describe a shrunken and hardened hippocampus, which histologically displayed neuronal loss and glial proliferation. These alterations are mainly located in the hilus of the dentate gyrus and in the CA1 and CA3 pyramidal cell layers but all hippocampal regions may show neuronal cell loss to varying(More)
PURPOSE Alzheimer disease (AD) and epilepsy are brain disorders frequently associated with neuronal cell loss in mesial temporal lobe structures, but presenting different patterns of damage. Recently it was proposed that a causal relation may exist between AD pathology and the appearance of epilepsy in some cases with AD. This study aimed to determine the(More)
Glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain where, due to the activity of specific vesicular glutamate transporters, it accumulates in synaptic vesicles. The vesicular glutamate transporter 1 is found in the majority of axon terminals that form asymmetrical (excitatory) synapses in the rat neocortex. However, since there is no information(More)
