The hippocampus is reciprocally connected with the entorhinal cortex. Although several studies emphasized a role for the entorhinal cortex in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE), it remains uncertain whether its synaptic connections with the hippocampus are altered. To address this question, we traced hippocampo-entorhinal and entorhino-hippocampal(More)
Focal cortical dysplasias (FCDs) are local malformations of the human neocortex with strong epileptogenic potential. To investigate the underlying pathomechanisms, we performed a whole human transcriptome screening to compare the gene expression pattern of dysplastic versus nondysplastic temporal neocortex. Tissue obtained from FCD IIIa cases (mean age 20.5(More)
