the brain. Dysfunction in inhibitory synaptic transmission mediated by gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), enhanced glutamatergic excitatory synaptic mechanisms, increases in calcium flow, and the intensification of spontaneous neuronal firing are the primary mechanisms responsible for seizure episodes.
