Neonatal hippocampus structure overlaid with electrophysiological trace of seizure activity, and the molecular structure of gluconate

Gluconate, a small organic molecule, inhibits neonatal seizures in rodent models and could open up new avenues for the treatment of epilepsy in human newborns. The image illustrates the structure of neonatal hippocampus (green), overlaid with a typical electrophysiological trace of seizure activity, and the molecular structure of gluconate.
