Expression of AMPA receptor subunits in hippocampus after status convulsion

Child's Nervous System, 04/24/2012

Immature brain was more resistant to seizure–induced neural damage. The time course of reduction and recovery differed for each subunit and was dependent on developmental stage. The increased expression of glutamate receptors (GluR)2 could confer early but transient protection in the immature brain after status convulsion (SC).
