1 expression, resulting in prolonged and enhanced burst activity (see Figure 1). 5. Thus, genetically determined, absence-related SWDs are the result of hypersynchronized, rhythmic excitations and inhibitions that result from complex intrinsic, synaptic, and network mechanisms in thalamus and cortex. ’ Pharmacology of CAE The pharmacological target of typical absence drugs, especially ETX, has been a matter of long-standing controversy. In line with the IT dependence of thalamocortical slow oscillations, the mechanism of action of ETX had initially been attributed to a reduction of this current in TC neurons.

Are there initiation sites in the cortex, or does neocortex just act as a passive by-stander to a rhythm elaborated within the thalamus? Although the evidence obtained in the feline generalized penicillin model indicates that the occurrence of generalized SW discharges require hyperexcitable neocortical networks, a definitive answer to how absence seizures are initiated, and then generalize within the brain, has been provided by studying WAG/Rij rats. 5 mV 1 mV 20 s Figure 4 Spontaneous field potential activity induced by low (a) and high (b) concentrations of 4-aminopyridine in the thalamocortical slice preparation.
