Abstract

The overall goal of research in many laboratories is to identify mechanisms involved in the suppression of seizures as a function of age and gender. Epidemiological studies suggest that early in life, the brain is very susceptible to seizures and especially status epilepticus (SE). The substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNR) is one of the brain sites critically involved in the control of seizures. Understanding the normal development of this endogenous system, as well as the spectrum and progressive nature of SE-induced changes in brain function, may have important implications in the design of treatments aimed at disease modification - particularly with respect to specific age groups in either gender.
