Takeaway

  • Disruptions in the balance between basal ganglia inhibition and thalamus synchronization may inform the presence and control of focal to bilateral tonic-clonic seizures (FBTCS).

Why this matters

    A greater understanding of the mechanisms behind FBTCS may inform development of new treatment strategies for people with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE).
