Electrical activity of rat brain was modified by the neurotoxin 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine administered according to a scheme inducing experimental depressive syndrome. The changes were manifested by local epileptiform activity in the structures of the caudate-putamen complex, an increase in the δ-rhythm power, and a decrease in the α-rhythm power, which attests to hyperactivity in these structures. An increase in the δ-rhythm power was observed in the hippocamp.
