Computer model was used to investigate the possible mechanisms of seizure initiation, progression and termination. The model was developed by complementing the Hodgkin-Huxley equations with activity-dependent changes in intra- and extracellular ion concentrations. The model incorporates a number of ionic mechanisms such as: active and passive membrane currents, inhibitory synaptic GABAA currents, Na/K pump, KCC2 cotransporter, glial K buffering, radial diffusion between extracellular space and bath, and longitudinal diffusion between dendritic and somatic compartments in pyramidal cells.
