1. Lowered osmolality promotes epileptiform activity both clinically and in the hippocampal slice preparation, but it is unclear how neurons are excited. We studied the effects of altered osmolality on the electrophysiological properties of CA1 pyramidal cells in hippocampal slices by the use of field and intracellular recordings. The excitability of these… CONTINUE READING
