Regulation of limbic motor seizures by GABA and glutamate transmission in nucleus tractus solitarius.


PURPOSE The nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) is a primary site at which vagal afferents terminate. Because afferent vagal nerve stimulation has been demonstrated to have anticonvulsant effects, it is likely that changes in synaptic transmission in the NTS can regulate seizure susceptibility. We tested this hypothesis by examining the influence of gamma… (More)
