SCHWARTZKROIN CONCLUDING COMMENT The underlying cellular bases of seizures, both partial and generalized, are complex. Even in those cases where a single gene mutation “causes” the epilepsy, the cascade of mechanisms that lead to seizure activity inevitably involves many different processes. For the most part, the cellular mechanisms associated with seizure activity are variations on a “normal” theme. Thus, an understanding of seizure mechanisms must start with a detailed view of normal brain function.

The process of removing synaptically released glutamate from the extracellular space). , 2009). Under some conditions (high levels of activity, such as during seizures), this transport process may run in the reverse direction, resulting in glial release of glutamate into the extracellular space – a process that would then presumably further excite nearby neurons (Haydon and Carmignoto, 2006; Malarkey and Parpura, 2008). , 2008). Indeed, when these astrocytic metabotropic glutamate receptors are activated, one can see (using calcium imaging techniques) the spread of calcium “waves” through the glial network.
