Can a lizard cause epilepsy?

This happens along the lizard life span, even in adult lizards, thus allowing one of their most important characteristics: neuronal regeneration.

The results of the present study add more similarities between the lizard dorsomedial cortex and parts of the mammalian hippocampus.

We conclude that neurogenesis occur in most regions of the adult lizard telencephalon.

The AR distribution in the lizard brain is similar to that reported for other vertebrate classes.

These results show that postnatal neurogenesis in the medial cortex of the lizard occurs following a spatio-temporal pattern reminiscent of that found in the fascia dentata of the mammalian hippocampus.
