In this study, the interactive effects of pyridostigmine, a pretreatment drug against nerve agents, and exercise training on muscle tension were investigated in the mouse lower extremity anterior muscular compartment by dorsiflexion of the foot with stimulation of the peroneal nerve. Acetylcholinesterase (AChE), lipid peroxidation (in terms of the(More)
The genetically epilepsy prone rats (GEPRs) are abnormally susceptible to seizures with a variety of treatments and can be used as a model to study generalized seizure predisposition involving the brainstem and forebrain structures. We investigated the basic membrane and synaptic properties of hippocampal CA1 cells in Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats and GEPRs.(More)
The genetically epilepsy-prone rat (GEPR) provides a valuable model to study the mechanism of neonatal seizure susceptibility because seizure predisposition in GEPRs is determined by factors present from birth. We have previously shown that reduced afterhyperpolarization (AHP), reduced spike frequency adaptation and increased excitation with repetitive(More)
The genetically epilepsy-prone rat (GEPR) has become an important model to study genetic predisposition to epilepsy involving not only the brainstem but also forebrain structures. Previous work in CA1 hippocampal cells showed a reduction in spike frequency adaptation and only subtle changes in slow afterhyperpolarization (AHP). As important differences(More)
OBJECTIVE Although electrical stimulation of vagus nerve is used widely for treatment of epilepsy the electrophysiological properties of human vagus nerve are not well characterized. Our objective was to measure compound action potentials of human vagus nerve fiber groups intraoperatively by stimulation using a commercially available generator and electrode(More)
