PURPOSE Status epilepticus has been increasingly associated with cardiac injury in both clinical and animal studies. Our group has previously shown that excitotoxic seizure induction results in the formation of ischaemic myocardial infarcts and loss of cardiac haemodynamic function. We hypothesised that attenuation of cardiac sympathetic/parasympathetic(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Status epilepticus is increasingly associated with cardiac injury in both clinical and animal studies. The current study examined ECG activity for up to 48 h following kainic acid (KA) seizure induction and compared the potential of atenolol and clonidine to attenuate this cardiac pathology. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH Sprague-Dawley rats(More)
Seizures are associated with altered autonomic activity, which has been implicated in the development of cardiac dysfunction and structural damage. This study aimed to investigate the involvement of the autonomic nervous system in seizure-induced cardiomyopathy. Male Sprague-Dawley rats (320-350 g) were implanted with EEG/ECG electrodes to allow(More)
