Repetition of audiogenic seizures (AGS) (AGS kindling) results in increases in the duration of convulsive behavior and the emergence of cortical epileptiform EEG activity. These changes involve expansion of the neuronal network subserving these seizures. The amygdala (AMG) is postulated to become involved in this expanded network, but the neurophysiological basis of this process is unknown. The present study examined changes in chronically-recorded extracellular neuronal firing patterns in the… CONTINUE READING
