The good quality of people is the most important factor for national development, so I and my research group plan to answer the question “how to improve the cognitive abilities in Thai people” by using both animal and human study models. At animal level, we have been interested in a study of abnormal brain structure and function in experimental epileptic model. We use this model to study both short-term and long-term sequelaes of early-life seizures in animals, which are correspond with neonatal seizure and seizure during childhood period, and observe various changes in central nervous system as well as animal’s behaviors. New information about abnormal cognition and behaviors in this animal model will reveal the knowledge of specific brain region that are responsible for cognitive abilities in living organism and can be applied to understanding of abnormal cognition in many epileptic syndromes in human patients.
