In experiments on albino rats, we studied the process of formation of a food-procuring conditioned reflex (receipt of the food reward from one of two feedboxes designated by the visual conditioning signal) and characteristics of behavior in the open field test. It was found that course injections of oxytocin (4 μg daily, 15 min prior to the test for 12(More)
We studied the effect of acute stress induced by nociceptive stimulation of the limbs on the duration of ECoG epileptiform activity and manifestation of generalized motor convulsive reactions under conditions of a kindling model of epilepsy in rats. Two and four weeks after termination of the kindling procedure, test stimulations of the hippocampus evoked(More)
The main objective of the study was to determine the effect of gestation and postgestation periods on development and course of seizure activity. The data obtained in the study showed that i) there is a reduction of both EEG and behavioral seizures during gestation in the presence of hippocampal epileptogenic locus (kindling model); ii) suppression of(More)
Interrelation between pregnancy and epilepsy is one of the pressing problems of current neurology. Those mechanisms, which suppress or amplify the seizure reactions in pregnancy, have not been yet determined experimentally. Investigation of the interrelation between the epileptic fits and pregnancy in women is complicated by the bioethical considerations,(More)
In the present study a histochemical investigation of the SO and PV nuclei of the hypothalamic-pituitary neurosecretory system are presented at different periods of the water deprivation. The experiments were carried out on laboratory rats (n = 50), weighing 200-250 grams. The experimental and control animals days was maintained at different feeding ration.(More)
