Experimental Febrile Convulsions in Epileptic Chickens: The Anticonvulsant Effect of Elevated γ‐Aminobutyric Acid Concentrations
TLDR
The temperature at which seizures occurred was significantly lower in epileptic than in nonepileptic chicks, indicating a lower threshold for febrile seizures when there is an inherited predisposition to convulse.

TLDR
It is indicated that even a single experimental febrile convulsion during infancy can exert a long‐lasting, if not permanent, enhancement in seizure susceptibility.
