Objectives: Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by functional/morphological changes in the hippocampus. These functional changes arise as increase or decrease in synaptic plasticity in experimental animals. The present study was an investigation of the effect of enriched environment on hippocampal functional changes in epileptic rats.
