The infusion of an NMDA antagonist into perirhinal cortex suppresses amygdala-kindled seizures.


The seizure-modulating role of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors located in several limbic areas was investigated. Amygdala-kindled rats were microinfused with the selective NMDA-receptor antagonist 2-amino-5-phosphonovalerate (APV, 1 microliter, 70 nmol) or artificial cerebrospinal fluid (ACSF) applied through a cannula located in either the amygdala… (More)
