kindling is the concept where.... multiple subthreshold stimuli lead gradually to a full blown discharge...

concept of seizures....

In bipolar this same concept is said to be the basis on which AEDs are effective as mood stabilisers...

ie why... in bipolars, illness episodes come up even in the absence of any stressors...
