Behavioral response to a new environment of Wistar and WAG/Rij rats with absence and/or audiogenic seizures (AGSs) was investigated. Behavior was observed in open-field (OF) and light-dark choice (LD) tests. Correlations of test performance with seizure parameters were evaluated. AGS-susceptible Wistar rats exhibited reduced exploration (rearing) in both tests and a tendency toward hyperlocomotion in the OF test. Genetically absence-epileptic WAG/Rij rats demonstrated agitation (increased… CONTINUE READING
