  • Objective: Ionic magnesium (Mg2+) depletion has long been known to cause hyperexcitability with convulsive seizures in rodents, effects that have been reversed by treatment with magnesium (Mg). Metabolic disorders and genetic alterations are suspected in this pathology, in which Mg2+ transport and intracellular distribution may be reduced without change in serum Mg2+ concentrations. We evaluated the effects of Mg2+/vitamin B6 regimen on the behavior of 52 hyperexcitable children (under 15 years… CONTINUE READING
