Epilepsy is a circuit-level brain disorder characterized by excessive or hypersynchronous epileptic seizures involving a complex epileptogenic network. Cumulative evidence suggests that the piriform cortex (PC) is a crucial site in seizure initiation, propagation, and generalization in epilepsy. The kindling model is a classic animal model of complex partial seizures with secondarily generalized tonic seizures, which is usually used for the study of epilepsy pathogenesis and preclinical anti-epilepsy drug evaluation. Various essential functions of the PC in epilepsy were discovered in the kindling model, therefore, this review focuses on discussing the role of the PC in the kindling model. We review what pathological changes happen in the PC in the kindling model, how the PC is involved in the kindling model through different interventions, and finally we also provide perspectives on some possible research directions for future studies.
