    ..Our results suggest that two independent populations of septal cells distinctly encode hippocampal feedback, enabling the septum to monitor ongoing patterns of activity in the hippocampus. ..

    ..2013). Herein, we review the literature on this topic, focusing on identification of the endogenous molecule and its region-specific expression and function. ..

    ..In this issue of Neuron, Motelow et al. (2015) describe decreased cholinergic drive and suppressed subcortical arousal in seizures as a novel mechanism for impaired cortical function. ..

    ..The postnatal switch in GABA(A)R subunits from α5 to α3 could facilitate spontaneous network activity in nRt that occurs at this developmental time point and which is proposed to play a role in early circuit development. ..

    ..Our observation that loss of a single gene in the thalamus of an adult wild-type animal is sufficient to cause spike-wave discharges is striking and represents an example of absence epilepsy of thalamic origin. ..

    ..These results argue that CTC networks undergo a pre-seizure state transition, possibly due to a functional reorganization of cortical microcircuits, which leads to the generation of absence seizures. ..
