Increasing the efficacy of antiepileptic effect of diazepam by cerebellar cortex electrostimulation

  • A. I. Brusentsov
Pharmacology and Toxicology


Diazepam effects on epileptic foci induced by benzylpenicillin application to the posterior sigmoid gyrus were studied in acute experiments on cats. Diazepam more effectively decreased the activity of the foci after preliminary electrostimulation of the IX and X lobules of the vermis than without such a pretreatment.
