Glia–Neuron Interactions in Ictogenesis and Epileptogenesis

Show Summary Details


This chapter reports clinical observations in drug-resistant epilepsies and experimental findings in adult and immature rodent models of seizures and epileptogenesis that causally link brain inflammation to the epileptic process. We discuss the role of specific inflammatory mediators of glia–neuron communication in the etiopathogenesis of seizures.
