Further evidence of anticonvulsant role for 5-hydroxytryptamine in genetically epilepsy-prone rats.

1. This study was designed to evaluate further the role of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) in regulating susceptibility and/or intensity of audiogenic seizures in genetically epilepsy-prone rats. 2. The effects of sertraline, a highly selective and potent inhibitor of 5-HT uptake, on both the intensity of the audiogenic seizures and the extracellular… CONTINUE READING
