To test the hypothesis that testosterone may play a role in formation of the “anticonvulsant” SNRanterior , male rats were castrated on the day of birth. The rats were exposed to flurothyl at ages PN15 and PN25 following bilateral infusions of muscimol in the SNRanterior or SNRposterior . In the SNRanterior in PN15 neonatally castrated male rats, muscimol infusions had no effects on seizures; in PN25, muscimol infusions had anticonvulsant effects compared to saline-infused neonatally castrated controls.

Although none of the hypoxia models induced spontaneous seizures, their value is in showing that hypoxia and hypoxia-induced seizures in young brain may increase (under certain circumstances) seizure susceptibility in adult brain although it may not alter other brain functions. The mechanism for increased seizure susceptibility after neonatal hypoxia may be the plastic calcium-dependent downregulation of GABAergic synaptic transmission (261). In a recent study, a combined hypoxia-ischemia was accomplished by a ligation of the right common carotid artery in PN7 rats together with 2-hour exposure to 8% oxygen.

The data show consistency between metabolic rate and blood flow rate and demonstrate age-specific patterns of brain metabolic activation due to seizures. Recently, there has been an increased interest in the brain metabolic patterns in the lithium-pilocarpine model of epilepsy. Studies have demonstrated that, in agreement with previous work, spontaneous seizures consistently develop in PN21 and older rats subjected to lithiumpilocarpine status epilepticus (139, 149, 150). No spontaneous seizures were observed in those rats subjected to status epilepticus on PN10 (139), and the spontaneous seizures developed infrequently (23%) in 2-week-old rats exposed to lithium-pilocarpine status epilepticus (150).
