Abstract

When injected intraperitoneally in the Rat, oenanthotoxin induces localised myoclonic jerks and generalised tonic-clonic seizures. Electrocorticographic recordings reveal typical epileptic spikes. Correlations between electromyographic bursts, electrocorticographic events and subcortical activities support the hypothesis that the clonic jerks and the generalised seizures have a cortical orgin.
