Epilepsy is a condition in the brain characterized by repetitively occurring seizures. While various changes in neuronal properties have been reported to accompany or induce seizure activity in human or experimental epilepsy, other studies suggested that glial cells might be involved in epileptogenesis. Recent findings demonstrate that in the course of the disease, glial cells not only undergo structural alterations but also display distinct functional properties. Several studies identified… CONTINUE READING
