Effects of anticonvulsant drugs on 4-aminopyridine-induced seizures in mice
The K+ channel blocker 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) causes epileptiform activity in in vitro preparations and is a potent convulsant in animals and man. In mice, 4-AP produces behavioral activation, clonicExpand

Finasteride, a 5alpha-reductase inhibitor, blocks the anticonvulsant activity of progesterone in mice.
Progesterone is an effective anticonvulsant against pentylenetetrazol (PTZ) seizures. This action is hypothesized to require the metabolic conversion of progesterone to the gamma-aminobutyric acidAExpand

Anticonvulsant activity of AMPA/kainate antagonists: comparison of GYKI 52466 and NBQX in maximal electroshock and chemoconvulsant seizure models
The anticonvulsant activities of a noncompetitive (GYKI 52466) and a competitive (NBQX) AMPA/kainate antagonist were compared in the maximal electroshock (MES) seizure test and variousExpand

Lack of anticonvulsant tolerance to the neuroactive steroid pregnanolone in mice.
GABA-potentiating neuroactive steroids such as pregnanolone have potent protective effects in the pentylenetetrazol seizure test. We sought to determine if tolerance develops to the anticonvulsantExpand

Induction of seizures by the potent K+ channel-blocking scorpion venom peptide toxins tityustoxin-K(alpha) and pandinustoxin-K(alpha).
The scorpion venom peptide toxins tityustoxin-K(alpha) (TsTx-K(alpha)) and pandinustoxin-K(alpha) (PiTx-K(alpha)) are novel, highly potent and selective blockers of voltage-activated K+ channels.Expand

Role of AMPA and GluR5 kainate receptors in the development and expression of amygdala kindling in the mouse
The role of AMPA and GluR5-containing kainate receptors in the development and expression of amygdala kindling was examined using the selective 2,3-benzodiazepine AMPA receptor antagonist GYKI 52466Expand
