A 24 h stimulation protocol in mice (applied under anesthesia) also leads to hippocampal sclerosis and spontaneous seizures (Kienzler et al., 2009). Although most changes in hippocampal neurogenesis in case of seizures suggest a proepileptic role, a recent study has shown that epilepsy-generated mature granule neurons in the granule cell layer are suppressed, as they receive less excitatory drive and more inhibitory input when compared to new granule neurons generated in physiological conditions (Jakubs et al., 2006). Nat. The sprouted fibers form excitatory synapses primarily onto other granule cells, likely contributing to hyperexcitability and spontaneous seizures (Scharfman et al., 2003). Cell death in both the anterior and posterior hippocampal segments has been associated with regional mesial temporal onsets (Babb et al., 1984). Surgical resection is the gold standard treatment for drug-resistant focal epilepsy, including mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) and other focal cortical lesions with correlated electrophysiological features. Thus there is a subpopulation of patients with refractory mesial temporal epilepsy for whom resective surgery is not an option, but who may respond to epileptogenic disruption via hippocampal DBS. Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis (MTLE-HS) is a well characterized electro-clinical epileptic syndrome. These results suggest that activation of group I mGluRs in O-LM interneurons generates intrinsic, sodium channel-independent oscillations. Along with three other lobes – the occipital lobe, the frontal lobe, and the parietal lobe – it makes up the cerebrum. Surgical resection is the gold standard treatment for drug-resistant focal epilepsy, including mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) and other focal cortical lesions with correlated electrophysiological features. Water Homeostasis Dysfunction in Epilepsy, Animal Models of Drug-Refractory Epilepsy, Use of Animal Models for Epilepsy Research and Therapy Development, Melissa Barker-Haliski, H. Steve White, in, Kindled seizure models are certainly superior to acute models from the perspective of modeling epilepsy. Other possible auras include hallucinations of sounds, voices, people, smells, and tastes. This observation suggests that the new neurons adjust their functional status to their local network environment, and therefore might help to compensate for pathological excitation in epileptic seizures. Similarly, Badaut et al. Check for errors and try again. In this patient it was a left sided temporal sclerosis. 12.4. In the normal brain there is a constant equilibrium between excitatory and inhibitory stimuli. Axons and somatodendritic compartment are shown in black and red, respectively. Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (mTLE) is the most common form of epilepsy, believed to arise in part from compromised GABAergic inhibition. After the seizure: 3.1. changes in conductance of ion channels, second messenger systems, or protein expression, or altered synaptic function, such as changes in neurotransmitter release or expression of neurotransmitter receptors. While these guidelines span all disciplines of preclinical research, according to a NIH analysis of public comments, “neurobiology and neurological disorders” was one of the top-cited areas of science that would benefit from considering SABV (The National Institutes of Health, 2015). HPDs present as spontaneous bursts of electrical activity within the lesioned hippocampus over the course of 1 h, and they usually become stable 4 weeks after KA lesioning (C. Roucard, SynapCell SAS, personal communication). Temporal lobectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the brain tissue in the temporal lobe that is causing the seizures. The mesial temporal lobe is, as the name suggests, located on the medial aspect of the temporal lobe and is distinct from the rest of the lobe which is comprised of neocortex.. Cell loss is evident in the hilus and pyramidal cell layers in CA3 and CA1. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY • Mesial temporal sclerosis -coined by Falconer & colleagues – by neuronal loss and gliosis involving principally the hippocampus and amygdala, or both, but occasionally extending to other mesial temporal structures or even throughout the temporal lobe, and leading to generalized atrophy and gliosis. In modified kainic acid (KA)- and pilocarpine-induced SE models, the rodent estrous cycle entrains interictal spike frequency (D’Amour et al., 2015). Neuropharmacology 139, 150–162. Increased Ca2 + levels in O-LM cells contribute to interneuron loss in TLE likely by necrotic cell death, apoptotic process, and other mechanisms that will not be discussed further since those topics are beyond the current scope (but reviewed in detail in Zhivotovsky and Orrenius, 2011). (2012) proposed that the intrahippocampal mouse model of mesial TLE is suited as a model of difficult-to-treat focal seizures. 1-3 The etiology of MTS is still not fully understood. Most patients present with complex partial temporal lobe epilepsy. The temporal lobe is one of the four major lobes of the cerebral cortex. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V.

A CPS is often preceded by an aura. By using bilateral milder PP stimulations in anesthetized or awake animals they avoid the induction of a convulsive SE so that extrahippocampal damage is restricted. A clear seizure-free latent period was only observed in male NMRI mice, but not in female NMRI, B6, or FVB/N mice. In human TLE, hippocampal sclerosis is evident in the dentate, CA3, and CA1 with selective cell loss and gliosis as shown in Fig. 81.3). These data suggest that mouse strain rather than sex explains our findings on strain differences in the latent period of the intrahippocampal kainate model (Twele et al., 2016a). Hippocampal onset accounts for at least 80% of all temporal lobe seizures. Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) comprises 30%–35% of all epilepsies and is the most common form of refractory symptomatic epilepsy (Spencer, 2002). Such asymptomatic localized disturbances may spread to recruit anatomically contiguous gray matter, creating a larger abnormality leading to the clinical manifestations of a seizure with changes in consciousness, motor control, sensory perception, behavior, and/or autonomic dysfunction (Davenport, 1998). An additional major change in the dentate gyrus is the recurrent sprouting of granule cells’ axon fibers, called mossy fibers (Buckmaster, 2012). Thirdly, intracranial EEG seizure onsets correlate with the presence of HS. The typical electrographic seizures observed in epileptic mice are high-voltage sharp waves (HVSWs) and hippocampal paroxysmal discharges (HPDs) (Riban et al., 2002; Twele et al., 2016a,b). (A and B) Nissl stain of normal human hippocampus (A) and damaged hippocampus due to hippocampal sclerosis (B). Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) affects the inner part of the temporal lobe manifesting in the hippocampus, parahippocampal gyrus and the amygdala. {"url":"/signup-modal-props.json?lang=us\u0026email="}. Mesial Temporal Sclerosis (MTS) is the most common cause of medically refractory Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (TLE). 4, 52–62. see Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy radiosurgery. Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) is often discussed as a separate entity because it is quite distinct from its lateral counterpart in terms of etiology, semiology, imaging, and electrophysiologic characteristics. Lip smacking 2.3. Follow up of children with febrile seizures does not demonstrate signific… During the seizure: 2.1. A milder electrical stimulation model that appears to mimic MTLE characteristics more closely has been advocated and developed by Sloviter and coworkers (Norwood et al., 2010; Sloviter et al., 2007). Déjà vu 1.4. Dispersion of granule cells, or the widening of the granule cell layer, is another typical phenomenon in TLE and is correlated with the severity of hippocampal neuronal loss and the extent of mossy fiber sprouting. The complete disconnection of the epileptogenic neural networks in the mesial temporal lobe determines the success of resective surgery. Furthermore, the HPDs are resistant to several of the available ASDs (Table 7.1; Bouilleret et al., 1999; Riban et al., 2002). Although these electrical stimulation post-SE models are useful for antiepileptogenesis and biomarker discovery studies and nicely reproduce various aspects of MTLE, several important aspects differ from the patient. Neuroscience 149, 131–143. HS is the most common lesion observed in patients with refractory TLE and is found in 60%–70% of the cases referred for surgical evaluation (Lewis, 2005). Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common form of adult localization-related epilepsy. Figure 81.3. Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. However, seizures themselves can cause or aggravate HS (Sutula et al., 2003). It remains an unresolved question whether granule cell dispersion is a developmental defect or the result of epileptic seizure activity. Hyperexcitability and spontaneous seizures in mesial TLE stem from structural and functional changes in the temporal lobe (Alexander et al., 2016; Dengler and Coulter, 2016). Uncus. The first part of this work concentrates on the concept of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy and its pathophysiology. Induction of SE by unilateral intrahippocampal injection of kainate is associated with almost no mortality, and most mice develop ipsilateral hippocampal damage, highly frequent nonconvulsive electrographic seizures, and less frequent convulsive seizures after SE. Our objective was to demonstrate common patterns of ictal cerebral blood flow changes in a group of patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) using the technique of composite subtraction ictal SPECT coregistered to MRI (SISCOM). Neurological and mental state Usually normal prior to seizure onset. Hippocampal sclerosis and slow oscillations in hippocampal interneurons mediated by group I metabotropic glutamate receptors. Unable to process the form. Temporal lobectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the brain tissue in the temporal lobe that is causing the seizures. For the first time in this context, a pathologic process in the medial temporal lobes, leading to hippocampal atrophy, is unequivocally documented. Thus, interneuron-associated disinhibition likely contributes to spontaneous seizures in TLE and is expected to be a viable target of the treatment of TLE. Given that somatostatin-expressing interneurons are particularly vulnerable in epilepsy (Best et al., 1993; Buckmaster and Jongen-Rêlo, 1999; Hofmann et al., 2016; Houser and Esclapez, 1996; Morin et al., 1998), our results suggest that intracellular calcium overload in O-LM interneurons, in part due to the involvement of nonselective cation-conducting transient receptor potential channels, L-type Ca2 + channels, and ryanodine receptors, triggers excitotoxicity in O-LM cells, as previously suggested by some authors (Choi, 1994). , granule cell layer ; ML, molecular layer of the four lobes...
