GABAergic Control of the HPA axis as a Treatment Target for Epilepsy.Wakefield, Seth.
Abstract: In response to stress, the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis is activated and the stress hormone corticosterone is released from the adrenal gland in mice. Stress is a common trigger for seizures, and epileptic patients have increased levels of stress hormones.
