Children with epilepsy after withdrawal of anticonvulsive
therapy: psychiatric behaviour and neuropsychological abilities.
However, more research is needed towards better understanding the role of somatic factors that might trigger the psychoses and the efficacy (acute phase and prophylaxis) of neuroleptics agents, benzodiazepines, anticonvulsive
agents and electroconvulsive therapy (3).

Anxiolytic and anticonvulsive
activity of Sesbania grundiflora leaves in experimental animals, Phytother Res, 16(5): 455-60.
Retigabine, which has recently been approved as an anticonvulsive
, normalized this activity; so now we can formally go from the dish to the patient and actually explore whether the drug might have any beneficial effect.
VPA is a branchedchain fatty acid with anticonvulsive
action due to the combined pharmacological effect of increased y-amino-butyric acid (GABA) levels inhibiting N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors and a blockade of neuronal sodium channels.
The substituted 1,3,4-Oxadiazoles exhibit remarkable anti-depressive, anticonvulsive
