Probably, the impact of escitalopram is mediated by the raise of the expression of BDNF in hippocampal and neocortical brain structures, which in turn leads to normalization of glutamate-dependent mechanism of synaptic plasticity.

While high-grade glial neoplasms and metastatic disease often present acutely with new onset seizures, lower grade malignancies such as ganglioglioma, pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma, dysembryoplastic neuro-epithelial tumor (DNET), and pilocytic astrocytoma often localized to the neocortical areas and can present clinically and radiographically similar to cortical dysplasias.
Imaging of calcium concentration during application of either HFS or LFS to neocortical cells revealed that the calcium peak was highest during the HFS protocol that induces LTP, and that the calcium signal was lower, but still significant, during the LFS protocol that induces LTD (Hansel et al, 1996).
