Enhanced nonsynaptic epileptiform activity in the dentate gyrus after kainate-induced status epilepticus.

Understanding the mechanisms that influence brain excitability and synchronization provides hope that epileptic seizures can be controlled. In this scenario, non-synaptic mechanisms have a critical role in seizure activity. The contribution of ion transporters to the regulation of seizure-like activity has not been extensively studied. Here, we examined how… CONTINUE READING
