In vivo demonstration of altered benzodiazepine receptor density in patients with generalised epilepsy.


Electrophysiological data suggest that an abnormal oscillatory pattern of discharge in cortical and thalamic neurons may be the major mechanism underlying primary generalised epilepsy. No neurochemical or anatomical substrate for this theory has hitherto been demonstrated in humans and the pathophysiology of primary generalised epilepsy remains unknown. By… (More)
