Effects of Diphenylhydantoin and Other Antiepileptic Drugs on Epileptiform Activity and Purkinje Cell Discharge Rates
The effects of antiepileptic drugs on cerebellar Purkinje cell discharge rates and cerebral cortical epileptiform activity were studied in cats with penicillin foci in sensory‐motor cortex and Cerebellar P‐cell discharge rates did not increase following administration of antiespecific drugs which did not decrease CEB activity.
