Pedunculopontine nucleus stimulation (PPNS) is, in recent times, being proposed as a novel electrostimulation technique for patients with intractable epilepsy [1,2]. The technique is essentially based upon the inherent potent antiepileptic potential of REM sleep and its enhancement by PPNS [3]. This brief paper is intended to display some similarity between PPNS and the mechanism of nature's inherent enhancement of antiepileptic potential in humans. It is well known that incidence and risk of… CONTINUE READING
