Rats of the genetically epileptic WAG/Rij strain show a more long-lasting intermediate stage of sleep compared to rats of the Wistar strain. Therefore the WAG/Rij strain provides a privileged model for studying this stage of sleep. On the other hand, the percentage of paradoxical sleep in WAG/Rij rats is lower than in Wistar rats, for the reason that the(More)
Six WAG/Rij rats, an animal model of human absence epilepsy, were injected intraperitoneally with riluzole. At 4 mg/kg, riluzole decreased the number, mean duration and spike-frequency of the spontaneously occurring discharges for 3 h. Riluzole also increased slow wave sleep at the expense of waking. As riluzole at 3 mg/kg decreased the number and(More)
Background Occipital nerve stimulation (ONS) has been proposed to treat chronic medically-intractable cluster headache (iCCH) in small series of cases without evaluation of its functional and emotional impacts. Methods We report the multidimensional outcome of a large observational study of iCCH patients, treated by ONS within a nationwide multidisciplinary(More)
