Neonatal seizures remain a major clinical problem worldwide and are harmful to the developing brain. Seizures are associated with poor neurodevelopmental outcomes and significant risk of death requiring urgent diagnosis and intervention. Current antiepileptic drugs however have limited efficacy and are potentially harmful to the developing newborn brain. Despite this, standard clinical practice for the treatment of neonatal seizures remains unchanged. This chapter describes a clinically relevant neonatal animal model of HI-induced seizures.
