A quantitative description of motor seizures induced by pentylenetetrazol (PTZ, metrazol) was performed. Seizures were induced by PTZ in doses from 40 to 120 mg/kg s.c. in 477 male albino rats of the Wistar strain 7 to 90 days old. Two patterns of seizures were elicited: minimal, i.e. predominantly clonic seizures of facial and forelimb muscles with(More)
The effect of ethosuximide, dipropylacetate and clonazepam on metrazol convulsions induced by a dose of 80 mg/kg was studied in 314 male albino rats aged from 5 days to adult. In a standard dose of 125 mg/kg, ethosuximide reliably protected only adult and 25-day-old rats, i.e. the age groups in which a mature minimal seizure was the only type of convulsion(More)
Motor and electrocorticographic (ECoG) phenomena induced by pentamethylenetetrazol (PTZ) were directly compared in adult as well as in young rats (age groups of 7, 12, and 18 days). The technique for implantation of cortical electrodes was elaborated in young rats. Myoclonic jerks were elicited by PTZ in all age groups studied. In adult animals they were(More)
Metrazol administered subcutaneously at a dose of 80 mg . kg-1 elicited genuine minimal seizures (predominantly clonic) in adult, 45- and 25-day-old rats. The same dose of metrazol resulted in long-lasting generalized tonic-clonic seizures in rats aged 15 days and younger. Eighteen-day-old rats represented a transitory stage in which both types of seizures(More)
Rhythmic activity of the spike-and-wave type was induced by administration of metrazol (25 or 50 mg/kg s.c.) in male rats with implanted cortical electrodes. The animals were deprived of water and then allowed to lick water from a tube. Under control conditions they licked for 3-4 min without an interruption. Rhythmic metrazol activity deranged the licking;(More)
The initial two parts of a 3-volume study on cerebral ictus concerned with analysis of macroangiopathic ischaemic defects are concluded with a final study analyzing microangiopathic defects. In a group of 93 patients with status lacunaris cerebri, the authors evaluated the presence and morphology of three main manifestations of status lacunaris: cerebral(More)
The antiepileptic action of clonazepam was studied on epileptogenic foci induced by penicillin in sensorimotor cortex in acute experiments in rats. Clonazepam (1 mg/kg intraperitoneally) only moderately decreased the frequency of interictal discharges of single cortical focus and delayed the propagation of discharges into the ipsilateral occipital region.(More)
