Epilepsy is the manifestation of the disease due to overstimulation of the brain. The common signs of this disease are chronic, episodic and recurrent seizures. This problem usually occurs in dogs and cats with the prevalence of the problem estimated about 5.0-5.7 % in dog population and about 0.5 % in the cat population. Today, there is a lot of studies that had been done to search for the new alternative anticonvulsant and antiepilleptic using allopathy or traditional medicine, one of them…

Anticonvulsant activities of nutmeg oil of Myristica fragrans
TLDR
The results indicate that nutmeg oil may be effective against grand mal and partial seizures, as it prevents seizure spread in a set of established animal models.
Antiepileptic effect of nefiracetam on kainic acid-induced limbic seizure in rats
Effects of some antiepileptic and proconvulsant drugs on kainic acid‐induced limbic epilepsy in cats
TLDR
Diazepam completely blocked limbic seizures but not high‐frequency discharges in the site of injection and the ipsilateral hippocampus, and DL‐C‐allylglycine activated KA amygdaloid focus during the remission state and ketamine produced independent epileptiformlike activity which interfered with that produced by KA injection.
Effects of terpineol on the compound action potential of the rat sciatic nerve.
TLDR
Terpineol induced a dose-dependent blockade of the CAP and significantly reduced peak-to-peak amplitude and conduction velocity of CAP at the end of 180-min exposure of the nerve to the drug.
Kainic acid-induced seizures and brain damage in the rat: different effects of NMDA- and AMPA receptor antagonists.
TLDR
The results emphasize the importance of the NMDA-receptor activation for seizure generation and subsequent brain damage after intraperitoneally kainic acid.
Anticonvulsant Effects of Carbamazepine on Spontaneous Seizures in Rats with Kainate‐induced Epilepsy: Comparison of Intraperitoneal Injections with Drug‐in‐food Protocols
TLDR
The purpose was to develop a convenient drug‐in‐food approach for continuous, long‐term administration of potential antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) for rats with kainate‐induced epilepsy.

Kainic Acid-Induced Seizures Enhance Dentate Gyrus Inhibition by Downregulation of GABAB Receptors
TLDR
The findings indicate that seizure-induced enhancement in dentate inhibition is caused, at least in part, by reduced GABAB function in the polysynaptic recurrent inhibitory circuit, resulting in reduced disinhibition and heightened GABA release.
