    ABSTRACT: Epilepsy is an incurable disorder of nervous system, and most treatments can only control the symptoms. The mechanism of epilepsy is still unknown. Many researchers try to learn the mechanism of epilepsy in different levels and by different methods, including molecular biology, cell and in vivo models.

This review introduces the characteristics and application of cell preparation of patch clamp of epilepsy.
