Epileptogenesis following neocortical trauma from two sources of disinhibition. J. Neurophysiol. 78: 2804-2810, 1997. Intracellular and field potential recordings were obtained from superficial and deep neurons from both intact coronal rat somatosensory slices, and from slices which had been acutely divided into a superficial strip of cortex ( approximately 450 micron from the pia) and a deep segment. Membrane properties for cells in the traumatized slices were similar to those of their… Expand
Increased pyramidal excitability and NMDA conductance can explain posttraumatic epileptogenesis without disinhibition: a model.
TLDR
Increasing the excitability of pyramidal cells and the strength of NMDA conductances, in the face of either unaltered or increased inhibition, resulted in generation of epileptiform activity that had characteristics similar to those of the experimental data. Expand
Acute injury to superficial cortex leads to a decrease in synaptic inhibition and increase in excitation in neocortical layer V pyramidal cells.
TLDR
The findings suggest that acute injury to the superficial neocortical layers results in a disinhibition of cortical circuits that stems from a decline in GABA release likely due to the loss of superficial inhibitory interneurons and an enhancement of synaptic excitation consequent to an increase in the AMPA receptor unit conductance.

Gabapentin Prevents Progressive Increases in Excitatory Connectivity and Epileptogenesis Following Neocortical Trauma
TLDR
Results reveal that aberrant circuit rewiring is progressive in vivo and provide further rationale for prophylactic anti-epileptogenic use of gabapentinoids following cortical trauma. Expand
Spontaneous epileptiform activity in rat neocortex after controlled cortical impact injury.
TLDR
Results indicate that during the first 2 weeks following severe CCI injury, there is a progressive development of neocortical hyperexcitability that ultimately leads to spontaneous epileptiform firing, suggesting a rapid epileptogenic process. Expand
Aberrant excitatory rewiring of layer V pyramidal neurons early after neocortical trauma
TLDR
Results suggest that aberrant reorganization of excitatory connectivity contributes to early neocortical hyperexcitability in this model and are relevant for understanding the pathophysiology of neocorticals post-traumatic epileptogenesis. Expand
Removal of superficial inhibition releases hyperexcitability in middle and deep horizontal slices from rat somatosensory neocortex
TLDR
Within cortex inhibition dominates superficially and excitation predominates in deeper layers, and enhancing fast inhibition can reset the excitation-inhibition balance, and prevent epileptogenesis. Expand
Valproate Prevents Epileptiform Activity After Trauma in an In Vitro Model in Neocortical Slices
TLDR
Valproate significantly reduces epileptiform activity after trauma to the neocortex, likely by restoring the excitation-inhibition balance, perhaps through augmentation of gamma-aminobutyric acid transmission. Expand
Valproate Prevents Epileptiform Activity After Trauma in an In Vitro Model in Neocortical Slices
Purpose: Epileptogenesis is a hallmark of severe cortical trauma, with up to approximately 80% of patients experiencing seizures in the first 24 hours after penetrating head injury. An in vitro modelExpand
Hyperexcitability of Distal Dendrites in Hippocampal Pyramidal Cells after Chronic Partial Deafferentation
TLDR
It is suggested that a posttranslational downregulation of SK channel function in thin distal dendrites is a significant contributor to deafferentation-induced reactive hyperexcitability. Expand
Modulation of muscarinic facilitation of epileptiform discharges in immature rat neocortex
TLDR
It is demonstrated that activation of muscarinic receptors, notably of the M1 type, in immature rat neocortex facilitates the generation of glutamatergic epileptiform discharges. Expand

TLDR
A variety of observations suggested that the neuronal activities underlying epileptiform field potentials were relatively asynchronous and much less intense than those previously found in chemically induced epileptogenesis within the neocortex. Expand
Laminar pattern of synaptic inhibition during convulsive activity induced by 4-aminopyridine in neocortical slices.

Recruitment of GABAA inhibition in rat neocortex is limited and not NMDA dependent.
TLDR
The results suggest that recruitment of GABA(A) ergic IPSCs in neocortex is ultimately driven via glutamatergic afferents arriving at non-NMDA receptors on interneurons, and suggested that neocortical inhibitory cells could be driven exclusively through non- NMDA transmission. Expand

TLDR
Two mechanistically distinct types of IPSPs which result from GABA interaction at GABAA and GABAB receptors on neocortical neurones may be mediated by separate classes of inhibitory neurones. Expand
Electrophysiological mapping of GABAA receptor-mediated inhibition in adult rat somatosensory cortex.
TLDR
Quantification of GABAA-mediated IPSCs indicates that this zone of inhibitory synaptic convergence onto a given pyramidal neuron is subdivided into a powerful local inhibitory zone and a surrounding area of long-range, less effective, inhibitory projections. Expand

TLDR
Although inhibitory neurons mediating GABA(B) IPSPs may be entrained by the excitatory GABA(A) mechanism, they appear to be a separate subset of GABAergic neurons capable of functioning independently with autonomous pacing, suggesting that GABA( a)ergic neurons may be synchronized via recurrent collaterals through the depolarizing action of synaptically activated GABA( A) receptors and a mechanism involving electrotonic coupling. Expand
Horizontal spread of synchronized activity in neocortex and its control by GABA-mediated inhibition.
TLDR
The horizontal spread of normal cortical activity is strongly constrained by GABAA-mediated IPSPs, a relatively small reduction in the efficacy of inhibition leads to a large increase in the spread of excitation, and the character of epileptiform activity is strong affected by the influences of inhibition.

Differences in inhibitory synaptic input between layer II-III and layer V neurons of the cat neocortex.
TLDR
Comparing the relative effectiveness of intrinsic inhibitory synaptic inputs in different layers of the cat motor cortex revealed that fIPSPs could be evoked in all layer V cells by local stimulation of the superficial or deep layers, even in those that showed small or no IPSPs in control perfusate. Expand
Ca(2+)-dependent plasticity of miniature inhibitory postsynaptic currents after amputation of dendrites in central neurons.
TLDR
Computer simulations of mIPSCs suggested that changes in single channel kinetics alone can, in principle, account for the Ca(2+)-dependent changes in mIPSC decay kinetics, and these findings are consistent with a lasting Ca-dependent increase in gamma-aminobutyric acid-A receptor function in cells that survive physical injury to their dendrites.

It is shown that distinctive intrinsic membrane properties of pyramidal neurons in visual cortex are correlated with different morphologies, and Burst firing responses to injected current pulses were confined to the layer 5 cells with thick apical dendrites. Expand
