Despite many advances made in understanding the pathophysiology of epileptic disorders, seizures remain poorly controlled in approximately one-third of patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. Here, we established the efficacy of cell type-specific low-frequency stimulation (LFS) in controlling ictogenesis in the mouse entorhinal cortex (EC) in an in vitro brain slice preparation. Specifically, we used 1 Hz optogenetic stimulation of calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II-positive… CONTINUE READING
