Rats submitted to Status epilepticus (SE) during development present behavioral changes typical of animal models of psychosis, which correlate with changes in synaptic plasticity between the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex (CPF). Our hypothesis is that SE affects the connectivity of meso-cortico-limbic circuits, which may underlie psychiatric comorbidities observed in epilepsy. Ou...
Febrile seizures are the most common seizure event during childhood and adolescence, although is still a controversial matter if these seizures can lead to subsequent temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Experimental studies demonstrate that seizures in the immature brain do not induce classical ELT physiopathology. However, subtle changes in the biochemical machinery and hippocampal synaptic ...
The medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC) is implicated in top-down control of action timing. MPFC single unit activity was shown to follow two patterns during timing tasks: a sustained delay-related activity inhibiting motor commands, and a ramping activity that could represent the passage of time. Dopaminergic projections from the ventral tegmental area (VTA) to the MPFC have been implicate...
