Dentate gyrus granule GLU cellSomaI Na,t.With whole-cell recordings the properties of a voltage-dependent Na+ currents were investigated in 42 DGC acutely isolated from the resected hippocampus of 20 patients with therapy-refractory temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) using the whole-cell patch-clamp technique.The kinetic properties contributed to a reduction of the Na+ currents during repetitive stimulation that was more pronounced with higher stimulation frequencies and also showed a dependence on the holding potential (Reckziegel G et al, 1998 [human]2 ). The kinetic properties of this current were studied using the whole-cell voltage-clamp method in acutely isolated cells. No significant differences were found after induction of status epilepticus (Ketelaars SO et al, 20011 ).
