    Section of Restorative Neurology, Wallenberg Neuroscience Center, University Hospital, S 221 85 Lund, Sweden
    Eur J Neurosci 12:2107-16. 2000
    ..These data indicate that basal forebrain cholinergic neurons suppress kindling elicited from amygdala, and that this dampening effect is mediated via cortical but not hippocampal projections...
  6. ncbi Septal cholinergic neurons suppress seizure development in hippocampal kindling in rats: comparison with noradrenergic neurons
    I Ferencz
    Section of Restorative Neurology, Wallenberg Neuroscience Center, University Hospital, S 221 85, Lund, Sweden
    Neuroscience 102:819-32. 2001
    ..This shows that, depending on the location of the primary epileptic focus, i.e. the site of stimulation, basal forebrain cholinergic neurons operate through different subsystems to counteract seizure development in kindling...

    Neurol Sci 26:89-94. 2005
    ..Thus, the biochemical and cognitive abnormalities observed in this study could be related to some disturbances of brain development induced by malnutrition and/or to a disturbance of neuronal programming of the gabaergic system...
