Further, excessive motor behavior (as during seizures) can change 2-DG uptake pattern and confound the results. Therefore, the 2-DG results should be interpreted with caution. Several 2-DG metabolic studies demonstrate agespecific metabolic involvement of brain structures in kainic acid-, kindling-, bicuculline-, and pentylenetetrazolseizures, with somewhat limited data on flurothyl seizures (28, 127–130). The excitotoxin kainic acid, as well as kindling, induces age-specific seizures that originate focally with subsequent generalization.

In contrast to adult male rats, infusions of muscimol in the SNRposterior in female rats have no effects on seizure threshold. As just mentioned, maturation of the SNR regions is under control of perinatal testosterone or its metabolites. Thus, in females, postnatal administration of testosterone leads to the male SNR phenotype (170, 179). The male–female differences in seizure control seem to be associated with sex-specific differences in the GABAergic system within the SNR as well as in connectivity patterns (173).

This seizure-induced damage is more pronounced in CA3 and hilar cells than in CA1 (145, 269, 273, 274) and is accompanied by sprouting of the mossy fibers of the granule cells in the dentate gyrus to the supragranular layers (275–281). Later, after 1–2 months, this damage may facilitate the development of spontaneous seizures and may result in serious behavioral deficits (140, 282, 283).
