  2. Wu J, Javedan S, Ellsworth K, Smith K, Fisher R. Gamma oscillation underlies hyperthermia-induced epileptiform-like spikes in immature rat hippocampal slices. BMC Neurosci. 2001;2:18 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that the GABA(A) receptor-governed gamma oscillations underlie the hyperthermic population spike activity in immature hippocampal slices. ..

    ..These findings suggest that human HH tissues, associated with gelastic seizures, contained predominantly small GABAergic inhibitory neurons that exhibited intrinsic "pacemaker-like" behavior. ..
