Survival of mossy cells of the hippocampal dentate gyrus in humans with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy.

Abstract

OBJECT Hippocampal sclerosis can be identified in most patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Surgical removal of the sclerotic hippocampus is widely performed to treat patients with drug-resistant mesial TLE. In general, both epilepsy-prone and epilepsy-resistant neurons are believed to be in the hippocampal formation. The hilar mossy cells of… (More)
