Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (TLE) is the most common adult focal epilpesy, and Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (MTLE) is the most frequente TLE subtype. The most frequent neuroimage finding in MTLE patients is Mesial Temporal Sclerosis, that has hippocampal atrophy as one of its main components. The electrical stimulation of the perforant pathway for a period of 8 hours in awake rats is reprod...
Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilesy (MTLE) is the most frequent form of epilepsy found in adults, and pyramidal neuronal death is the most frequent neuropathological marker found in this condition. A MTLE model in rats consists in the electrical stimulation of the performant pathway of awake rats for 8 hours. This animal model induced lesions with morphological aspects similar to those found i...
Epilepsy affects about 1% to 2% of world population, and the mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) the most frequent, representing 40% of patients, these are often refractory to medical treatment. One of the most used tools to try to understand the pathophysiology of MTLE is induced animal models. Despite several animal models currently available and widely studied, most of these lesions ...
