The effects of intracerebroventricular AM-251, a CB1-receptor antagonist, and ACEA, a CB1-receptor agonist, on penicillin-induced epileptiform activity in rats.

PURPOSE Several results support the conclusion that the cannabinoid system has a role in generation and cessation of epileptic seizures. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of intracerebroventricular AM-251 [N-(piperidin-1-yl)-5-(4-iodophenyl)-1-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-4-methyl-1H-pyrazole-3-carboxamide], a CB1-receptor antagonist, and ACEA… (More)
