This paper deals with the application of current source density (CSD) analysis to simultaneously recorded intracortical field potentials of the rabbit's visual cortex. Recordings were made with multielectrodes with either 8 contacts at distances of 300 μm, or 16 contacts at distances of 150 μm on one carrier needle. For synchronized activities, a spatial(More)
This paper describes results obtained from intracellular recordings and stainings of motor cortex neurons in the rat in vivo. Rats were anesthetized with phenobarbital. Neurons were intracellularly recorded with micropipettes filled with K+-methylsulphate + 4% HRP in phosphate buffer (pH 7.4). Successful recordings and stainings were obtained from 31(More)
In an attempt to elucidate the generation mechanisms underlying interictal spikes in the neocortex, the temporal development of spikes after the epicortical penicillin (PNC) application was studied. Field potentials (FP) were recorded simultaneously within the 6 neocortical layers with a multielectrode consisting of 16 contacts (10 X 10 micron 2) in a row(More)
BACKGROUND This study was conducted to investigate the effect of memantine, a noncompetitive N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor antagonist, on the neurologic outcome of spinal cord ischemia after aortic occlusion. MATERIALS AND METHODS New Zealand White rabbits were anesthetized and spinal cord ischemia was induced for 40 minutes by infrarenal aortic(More)
It has been postulated that dysfunction of the GABA-ergic transmission is causatively related to the development of epilepsy. Animal models of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) revealed considerable changes in the expression of GABA(A) receptor subunits in the hippocampus. Using immunocytochemistry, we investigated the expression of GABA(A) receptor subunits(More)
Intracortical spontaneous field potentials (EEG) were simultaneously recorded from the different layers of the rabbit's visual cortex using multielectrodes produced by thin-film technology. The signals were subjected to spectral analyses. Additionally, current source density analysis was applied to spontaneous delta waves. The results are based on 10(More)
Epileptic activity was elicited in the rat's motor cortex by local application of penicillin. At the neuronal level it consisted of typical paroxysmal depolarization shifts. The calcium agonist BAY K 8644 was injected into neurons showing such a discharge pattern. The application of this drug increased amplitude and afterdepolarization of paroxysmal(More)
Intracortical evoked potentials after electrical stimulation of the optic nerve were simultaneously recorded from the different layers of the rabbit's visual cortex. The averaged potentials were subjected to current source density analyses. The results show that the first event after the stimulus is a current sink in layer VI according to the excitatory(More)
Spontaneous EEG activities recorded with 19 electrodes (10-20 system) on the scalp were quantified by spectral analytical methods (power and coherence spectra) to reveal changes of power and coherence during different conditions (eyes closed/relaxed, eyes opened/relaxed, flicker stimulation, reading, listening to a story). Control subjects and depressive(More)
