Spontaneously occurring spike-wave discharges and serum concentrations of ovarian steroid hormones were investigated before, during and after pregnancy in WAG/Rij rats, a rat strain with genetically determined absence seizures. Eight groups of rats were included in the assays of progesterone and estradiol: rats at diestrus, at various days of pregnancy and at lactating days. The number of spike-wave discharges in cortical EEG of W rats was decreased from 3 up to 18 days of pregnancy and… CONTINUE READING
