Conditioning of interictal behaviours, but not ictal behaviours, seizures, or afterdischarge threshold, by kindling of the amygdala in rats
Repeated focal electrical stimulation of the brain results in kindling, the development of generalized seizures that progress in length and severity as more seizures are elicited. Barnes et al. (2001) paired one context ...
Assessing the role of the hippocampus in amygdala kindled fear : an analysis of environmental habituation
Amygdala kindling is commonly used to study the mechanisms involved in epileptogenesis, with long-term amygdala kindling providing a useful model of the behavioural disturbances— such as heightened anxiety— that can occur ...
The Uses of Metaphor in Epilepsy Narratives
Epilepsy has a long history of social, cultural, and historical interpretations and representations. Individuals diagnosed with this condition must often learn how to interpret and communicate new experiences after epilepsy ...
Aberrant structural and functional plasticity in the adult hippocampus of amygdala kindled rats
Amygdala kindling is commonly used to study the neural mechanisms of temporal lobe epilepsy and its behavioral consequences. The repetitive seizure activity that occurs during kindling is thought to induce an extensive ...
