Abstract: Abnormalities in GABA levels in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (CNIC) of the epilepsy-prone hamster (GPG/Vall) were evaluated by using immunohistochemistry, densitometry and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). These findings demonstrate a decrease both in GABA immunostaining (neuropil and neurons) and in GABA concentration (HPLC) in the CNIC of the epileptic hamster compared to control animals. These decreases may reflect a reduced availability of this neurotransmitter that may act as an audiogenic seizure-initiating factor.
