Possible mechanisms underlying hyperexcitability in the epileptic mutant mouse tottering.


Tottering mice present a useful experimental model of genetically determined generalized epilepsy of the absence type. In electrophysiological recordings from hippocampal slices in vitro we found that the postsynaptic excitability (firing threshold) of pyramidal neurons in the CA1 area of tg/tg slices was significantly higher than that of normal slices.
