Potential role of the glial water channel aquaporin-4 in epilepsy.


Recent studies have implicated glial cells in novel physiological roles in the CNS, such as modulation of synaptic transmission, so it is possible that glial cells might have a functional role in the hyperexcitability that is characteristic of epilepsy. Indeed, alterations in distinct astrocyte membrane channels, receptors and transporters have all been… (More)
