Seizures in the intrahippocampal kainic acid epilepsy model: characterization using long‐term video‐EEG monitoring in the rat
Objective –  Intrahippocampal injection of kainic acid (KA) in rats evokes a status epilepticus (SE) and leads to spontaneous seizures. However to date, precise electroencephalographic (EEG) andExpand
