    Stjepana Kovac
    UCL Institute of Neurology, University College London, London, UK
    J Cell Sci 125:1796-806. 2012
    ..These findings demonstrate a crucial role for mitochondrial dysfunction in seizure-activity-induced neuronal death, and that strategies aimed at redressing this are neuroprotective...

    Ana Marija Domijan
    UCL Institute of Neurology, London WC1N 3BG, UK
    J Cell Sci 127:21-6. 2014
    ..This implies that antioxidants can compromise intracellular Ca(2+) signalling through inhibition of PLC, and that PLC plays a dual role - signalling and antioxidant defence. ..

    Stjepana Kovac
    Institute of Neurology, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London, UK
    Epilepsy Behav 24:503-6. 2012
    ..Given the broad spectrum of signs elicited by SMA stimulation and rapid spread of seizures arising from the SMA, caution should be taken to not diagnose these as non-epileptic, as had previously occurred in this patient...
