Neuroprotective Effects Of B-Estradiol On Seizure-Induced Hippocampal Damage

Jana Veliskova, MD, PhD
Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY
 

Temporal Lobe Epilepsy is one of the most common forms of epilepsy, and often results in loss of neurons in the hippocampus of the brain, which subsequently leads to an increase in seizures. Dr. Veliskova’s study is examining, in female rats, the effectiveness of lowdose b-estradiol in protecting against damage to the hippocampus and the resulting increase in seizures.
