Human epilepsy is usually considered to result from cortical pathology, but animal studies show that the cortex may be secondarily involved in epileptogenesis, and cortical seizures may be triggered by extracortical mechanisms. In the audiogenic kindling model, recurrent subcortical (brainstem-driven) seizures induce secondary epileptic activation of the… CONTINUE READING
