      Dube, C.; Fernandes, MJDS; Nehlig, A. (Karger, 2001-05-01)
      The age-related functional changes underlying epileptogenesis remain to be clarified. in the present study, we explored the correlation between metabolic changes, neuronal damage and epileptogenesis during the acute, silent ...

      Carvalho, R. D.; Arida, Ricardo Mario [UNIFESP]; Cavalheiro, Esper Abrão [UNIFESP] (Wiley-Blackwell, 2003-02-01)
      Purpose: This study examined the effect of amygdala kindling development in Proechimys guayannensis rat, a common rodent of the Amazon basin.Methods: Adult male P. guayannensis animals (n = 43) and adult male Wistar rats ...

    • Anticonvulsant effect of a natural compound alpha,beta-epoxy-carvone and its action on the nerve excitability 

      Almeida, Reinaldo Nobrega de; Sousa, Damiao Pergentino de; Farias Nobrega, Franklin Ferreira de; Claudino, Fladmir de Sousa; Machado Araujo, Demetrius Antonio; Leite, Jose Roberto [UNIFESP]; Mattei, Rita [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2008-09-26)
      The anticonvulsant effect of alpha,beta-epoxy-carvone (EC), a monoterpene monocyclic, was investigated in three animal models. EC at 300 or 400 mg/kg promoted protection of 75% and 87.5%. respectively, against convulsions ...

    • Atypical EEG pattern in children with absence seizures
