Frequency- and Time-Domain EEG Topographic Analysis of the Amygdala Kindling Evolution in the Cat
The kindling process has well studied short term (e.g. the amygdaloidafter-discharge; AM/AD) and long lasting effects, that have been more difficult to evaluate. A great number of kindling experiments are performed in the rat, recording only the amygdaline or hippocampal ADs, with few if any, cortical recordings (a notorious exception are the works of Wada and his associates in sub-human primates), and correlating the ADs’ duration (rarely the frequency) with the behavioral stages. Very often, this correlation fails to explain the dramatic motor and vegetative display of the tardive behavioral stages (4, 5 and 6) of kindling.
