Özet

Introduction: Sodium (Na+) channels have an important role for action potential formation in both central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS). The persistent Na+ current play a role in repetitive firing of action potentials caused by prolonged depolarization, thus could play a role in epilepsy. Nerve excitability measurements are made to investigate biophysical properties and disturbances of impulse conduction in peripheral axons in human subjects.
