A seizure involves the synchronization of the activity of a very large population of periodically firing neurons [4,483]. It is well known that periodic electrical or sensory stimulation can be used to trigger the onset of a seizure. Here we discuss the use of periodic stimuli to abort seizures once they are occurring.
