Food intake and antiepileptic drugs: evidence for a role of GABA in circadian time keeping.

Abstract

Long-term application of sodium-valproate was studied while recording food intake of rats. It was found that sodium valproate was able to decrease the period length of free-running circadian rhythmicity. After withdrawal of the drug, the period length returned to the predrug values.
