Implication of gamma band in Soman-induced seizures

Acta Biotheoretica 47 (3-4):191-197 (1999)
Soman, an anticholinesterasic neurotoxic drug, induces epileptic seizures during severe intoxication. Their trigger conditions still remain unknown and a great variability between animals is observed. The butterfly model in the catastrophe theory has been used to explain these triggering conditions.We have developed a technique allowing, in freely moving rats, the « in vivo » determination of three sets of neurophysiological data, followed before and during a soman intoxication. For the same rat, we associated cortical acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity by microdialysis with both the assay of extracellular acetylcholine (ACh) concentrations and electroencephalographic (EEG) recording and power spectrum analysis (gamma band). Data have been analysed to define the critical parameters which lead to the epileptic fit.
