    Zeinab Birjandian
    Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Robarts Research Institute, University of Western Ontario London, ON, Canada
    Front Neural Circuits 7:183. 2013
    ..Our observations provide the first evidence of feed forward disinhibition loop that augments excitatory neurotransmission, a mechanism that could play an important role in the development of epileptic seizures. ..
