abstract

  • Do seizures change the brain? Studies on the kindling model--a widely used animal model of epilepsy--suggest that they do. Dr. Racine, one of the pioneers in the kindling field, describes the basic phenomena of kindling, and discusses the possible roles of cell growth and cell death in this model.
