  • Look Inside

The septal nucleus has close connections with the hippocampus and amygdala and is known to be involved in emotional behavior. We analyzed the electrophysiological and behavioral features of sei-zures induced by an injection of kainic acid into the lateral septal nucleus of the cat.Stereotactic surgery was performed to implant a cannula into the lateral septal nucleus to make the injection, and deep elec-trodes were implanted into the hippocampus and amygdala bilaterally.
