The Effect of Anti-seizure Medications on the Propagation of Epileptic Activity: A Review

Mohamed Khateb, Noam Bosak, Moshe Herskovitz
2021 Frontiers in Neurology  
The clinical importance of seizure propagation stems mainly from the fact that the epileptic manifestations cannot be attributed solely to the activity in the seizure focus itself, but rather to the propagation  ...  Motivated by the extensive impact of this phenomenon, we sought to review the literature regarding the propagation of epileptic activity and specifically the effect of commonly used ASMs on it.  ...  It was shown to increase the threshold for paroxysmal activity in response to electrical stimulation in a dose-dependent manner.  ...
