abstract

  • The effects on cortical kindling of atropine (a muscarinic, cholinergic blocking agent) and reserpine (a depleter of catecholamines and 5 hydroxytryptamine) were tested in this study. Atropine, which had previously been found to retard amygdaloid kindling, had similar but somewhat weaker effects on cortical kindling. Reserpine also had similar effects on cortical kindling compared to subcortical kindling in that it potentiated seizure responses.
