What are the nervous tissue cell(s) involved in Epilepsy?

Sep 26th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The nervous tissue cells involved in epilepsy are the nerve cells that use the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate. These neuronal cells are found in the gray matter in the cerebral cortex. Epilepsy results from excessive firing of these neurons in response to excitation by glutamate, resulting in initiation and propagation of  uncoordinated action potentials from the gray matter in the cerebral cortex.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
