Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder characterized by the recurrence of provoked seizures. Investigating the cellular and molecular events following a zure leads to a greater understanding in the mechanisms that potentiate subsequent seizures. Nitric oxide (NO) regulates the excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamate, through N-methyl-D-aspaitate (NMDA) receptors suggesting a role for NO in regulating neuronal excitability.
