Localization of the serotonergic terminal fields modulating seizures in the genetically epilepsy-prone rat.

Abstract

Serotonin (5-HT) has been shown to exert antiepileptic effects in a variety of generalized convulsive seizure models, particularly the genetically epilepsy-prone rat (GEPR). The present study was designed to identify the region/site(s) where 5-HT exerts anticonvulsant effects in the GEPR-9, a model in which sound-evoked generalized tonic-clonic seizures… (More)
