Epilepsy affects more than !% US population. Temporal lobe epilepsy is one of the most common form and most complicated epilepsy. Over 35 years epilepsy research, I have been working on the synaptic mechanism of temporal lobe epileptogenesid. Now, my research is focused on the critical period plasticity which could reoccur following brain insults. To discover when, where and which hippocampal region critical period reopened after brain insults could be a fundamental achievement for understanding the mechanism of temporal lobe epilepsy. The finding is also for other pathological disorders, such as PTSD, Schizophrenia and Alzheimer Disease as well as normal learning and memory.
