We analyzed with EEG-video monitoring the epileptic activity recorded during the latent and chronic periods in rats undergoing 30 or 120 min pilocarpine-induced convulsive status epilepticus (SE). Interictal discharges frequency in the entorhinal cortex (EC) of animals exposed to 120 min SE was significantly higher in the chronic than in the latent period. Following seizure appearance, interictal spikes diminished in duration in the CA3 of the 120 min SE group, and occurred at higher rates in the amygdala in all animals. Rats exposed to 120 min SE generated shorter seizures but presented twice as many non-convulsive seizures per day as the 30 min group. Finally, seizures most frequently initiated in CA3 in the 120 min SE group but had similar onset in CA3 and EC in the 30 min group. These findings indicate that convulsive SE duration influences the development of interictal and ictal activity, and that interictal discharges undergo structure-specific changes after seizure appearance.

Abstract

We analyzed with EEG-video monitoring the epileptic activity recorded during the latent and chronic periods in rats undergoing 30 or 120 min pilocarpine-induced convulsive status epilepticus (SE). Interictal discharges frequency in the entorhinal cortex (EC) of animals exposed to 120 min SE was significantly higher in the chronic than in the latent period. Following seizure appearance, interictal spikes diminished in duration in the CA3 of the 120 min SE group, and occurred at higher rates in the amygdala in all animals. Rats exposed to 120 min SE generated shorter seizures but presented twice as many non-convulsive seizures per day as the 30 min group. Finally, seizures most frequently initiated in CA3 in the 120 min SE group but had similar onset in CA3 and EC in the 30 min group. These findings indicate that convulsive SE duration influences the development of interictal and ictal activity, and that interictal discharges undergo structure-specific changes after seizure appearance.
