Loss of intensity-induced inhibition in inferior colliculus neurons leads to audiogenic seizure susceptibility in behaving genetically epilepsy-prone rats.

Abstract

The genetically epilepsy-prone rat (GEPR) exhibits elevated seizure sensitivity and audiogenic seizures (AGS). The inferior colliculus (IC) is the most critical brain region for AGS initiation. The present study evaluated IC neuronal firing and convulsive behavior simultaneously in freely moving GEPRs. High intensity acoustic stimulation produces neuronal… (More)
