The hippocampus represents a heterogeneous structure which has been associated with different functions. It has been suggested that it plays an important role in both learning and memory and epileptogenesis. Thus, it is not surprising that seizure activity generated in the hippocampal formation interferes with memory storage. Little is known about the functional differentiation between the dorsal (DH) and ventral hippocampus (VH). To study this functional differentiation, we kindled Wistar rats… CONTINUE READING
