Irradiation Lesions Exposure of embryonic day 16 (E16) or E17 rat embryos to irradiation disrupts migration patterns, resulting in the creation of numerous dysplastic lesions (40). These rats have a higher susceptibility to the development of electrographic epileptiform discharges after seizureprovoking test with acepromazine or xylazine. Similarly, 16 I • BASIC MECHANISMS in vitro neocortical slices from adult rats exposed to irradiation in utero demonstrate more robust epileptiform activity in bicuculline-containing medium than slices from control rats (45).

Seizure frequency increases with age and reaches adult levels within one week. Seizure severity varies across the strains and is apparently also genetically linked. Thus, the rates for spontaneous seizure are greatest in stg and lowest in du mice: stg ϾϾ tg ϾϾ lh Ͼ mh 2J Ͼdu (229). These data show that a defect at a single gene locus is sufficient to produce a spontaneous, generalized spike-and-wave seizure disorder. Additionally, the EEG trait is genetically heterogeneous and can arise from several different recessive mutations.
