The molecular basis for developing epilepsy remains under debate. It is hypothesized that increased excitatory synaptic activity might activate the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor/Ca(2+) transduction pathway, which induces long-lasting plasticity changes leading to recurrent epileptiform discharges. To determine if these effects are caused by disruption of(More)
The effect of latrunculin A microperfusion on hippocampal extracellular concentrations of glutamate, aspartate, glycine and GABA, as measured by in vivo microdialysis, was investigated. Latrunculin A (4 microg/ml) was perfused for three consecutive days (8h a day) to promote in vivo F-actin depolymerization. Intrahippocampal latrunculin A microdialysis(More)
Eslicarbazepine acetate (BIA 2-093, S-(-)-10-acetoxy-10,11-dihydro-5H-dibenzo/b,f/azepine-5-carboxamide) is a novel antiepileptic drug, now in Phase III clinical trials, designed with the aim of improving efficacy and safety in comparison with the structurally related drugs carbamazepine (CBZ) and oxcarbazepine (OXC). We have studied the effects of oral(More)
