PURPOSE This study was undertaken to evaluate the dose tolerability and safety of a chronic ascending twice-daily (b.i.d.) dosage regimen of < or = 700 mg/day lamotrigine (LTG) and to include determination of the LTG pharmacokinetic profile at doses > or = 500 mg/day in patients receiving concomitant enzyme-inducing antiepileptic drugs (AEDs).

The behavioral effects of felbamate were assessed in 20 persons, (ages 2 to 19 years) who were participating in a compassionate plea protocol for children with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. Parents completed a questionnaire concerning aspects of behavioral change once all medications were in a constant regimen. Significant improvements were suggested in social(More)
The performance of 129 mentally retarded persons was studied on a progressive fixed-ratio schedule of reinforcement. Subjects were selected according to antiepileptic drug (AED) regimen or membership in one of four control groups. The AEDs studied were: phenobarbital (PB); phenytoin (PHT); PB in combination with PHT (PB/PHT); and valproic acid (VPA) in(More)
Septal-lesioned and sham-operate rats were tested for reactivity to extraneous stimuli (clicks or flashing lights) presented during periods of low or high responding generated by a 120-sec FI schedule of reinforcement. While septal-lesioned rats tended to show greater disinhibition and less external inhibition than sham-operates, the magnitude of the(More)
The behavioral correlates of dominance in the squirrel monkey were explored using a variety of operant tasks. Compared to more submissive animals, more dominant ones showed higher operant rates, more consistent work output, and a higher degree of "frustration tolerance." These data suggest that dominance in the squirrel monkey is not related solely to(More)
Chlordiazepoxide HCl, at dose levels from 2.5 mg/kg to 80 mg/kg, significantly increased the low base rates of mouse killing (3-9%) observed in large samples (N = 100/dose) of Holtzman strain albino male rats. Maximal killing rates were obtained at doses from 7.5 mg/kg to 20 mg/kg. Diazepam was equally effective, and several times more potent than(More)
