The Paroxysmal Depolarization Shift: Reconsidering Its Role in Epilepsy, Epileptogenesis and Beyond

Helmut Kubista, Stefan Boehm, Matej Hotka
2019 International Journal of Molecular Sciences  
Evidence for the roles of PDS has often been obtained from investigations of the multi-unit correlate of PDS, an electrographic spike termed "interictal" because of its occurrence during seizure-free periods  ...  In this article, we give an introduction to PDS and review evidence that links PDS to pro- as well as anti-epileptic mechanisms, and to other types of neuronal dysfunction.  ...  Spike frequencies were similar to those reported for discharges in lateralized periodic discharges (LPDs), which were described to arise in the terminal phase of SE in humans [127] .  ...
