Mitochondria Re-set Epilepsy

Neuron. 2019 Jun 5;102(5):907-910. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2019.05.023.


Neuronal networks maintain stable activity around a given set point, an enigmatic variable in homeostatic systems. In this issue of Neuron, Styr et al. (2019) now show that set points are regulated by mitochondria and propose a potential strategy to treat refractory forms of epilepsy.
