The densities of the dopamine (DA) D1-like and D2-like receptors were studied by autoradiography in brain regions of rats with (WAG/Rij strain) and without (ACI strain) genetic absence epilepsy. The core of the nucleus accumbens in WAG/Rij rats had a lower density of D1-like receptors than in ACI rats, a reduction of both D1-like and D2-like DA receptors(More)
The effects of metoprine, an inhibitor of histamine N-methyltransferase, on open field activity and brain regional histamine (HA) content were examined in rats with mixed, absence and audiogenic, epilepsy (WAG/Rij-AGS), rats with audiogenic epilepsy (Wistar-AGS) and in non-epileptic control rats (Wistar-nAGS). HA content was increased by metoprine (20mg/kg,(More)
Behavior in the light-dark choice, open field, sucrose consumption/preference and forced swimming tests, monoamines and their metabolites content in 5 brain structures (prefrontal cortex, nucleus accumbens, striatum, hypothalamus, hippocampus), and density of D1- and D2-like dopamine receptors in the prefrontal cortex, nucleus accumbens and ventral(More)
Involvement of the brain dopaminergic system in the age-related dynamics of absence epilepsy in WAG/Rij rats was examined by histological, immunohistochemical, and electrophysiological (EEG) methods. We revealed reduced expression of dopamine receptors in various brain structures prior to first manifestations of the disease (at the age of 1–3 months),(More)
