Aggressive behaviors (numbers of bites/hour) within groups (ns = 8) of normal rats and rats in which seizures had been induced by a single systemic injection of lithium/pilocarpine were observed for 11 successive, 1-hr, periods. Mean numbers of neurons and glial cells were counted for 10 different nuclei of the amygdala for 16 different brains (8 control; 8(More)

The authors also acknowledge financial support from the Fédération Française des Sociétés d'Assurances (FFSA) and the FCAR in Quebec. They remain responsible for the(More)
Time-dependent atrophy of cerebral space and enlargement of the lateral ventricles were noted in healthy rats 1 to 100 days after the induction of seizures by a single systemic injection of lithium and pilocarpine. The rate of atrophy was most strongly correlated (0.90) with the log (base 10) of the time in days. Most of the degeneration had occurred within(More)
We are proposing a parametric model to rate insurance for vehicles belonging to a fleet. The tables of premiums presented take into account past vehicle accidents, observable characteristics of the vehicles and fleets, and violations of the road-safety code committed by drivers and carriers. The premiums are also adjusted according to accidents accumulated(More)
Different ratios of normal male rats and male rats in which limbic seizures had been induced by a single systemic injection of lithium and pilocarpine were housed in groups of six. The group ratios ranged along the continuum from all normal rats to all experimental rats. The average numbers of episodes of boxing, biting and mounting--thrusting per rat per(More)
