Status epilepticus alters neurogenesis and decreases the number of GABAergic neurons in the septal dentate gyrus of 9-day-old rats at the early phase of epileptogenesis.


The effects of a prolonged seizure, i.e. status epilepticus (SE), on neurogenesis of dentate granule cells (DGCs) in the immature dentate gyrus (DG) and possible changes in the phenotypes of the newborn neurons have remained incompletely characterized. We have now studied neurogenesis of DGCs in 9-day-old (postnatal, P9) rats 1 week after kainate (KA… (More)
