  • WAG/Rij rats are genetic animal model of absence epilepsy with comorbidity of depression. The first spike-wave discharges (SWDs) in WAG/Rij rats begin to appear at the age of 2-3 months and are fully manifested by 5-6 months. Occurrence of SWDs in the EEG is the main index of absence epilepsy. Previously it has been shown that the extensive absence epilepsy in 5-6 months old WAG/Rij rats is accompanied by decrease of dopamine and its metabolites concentrations in the meso-cortico-limbic and… CONTINUE READING
