The purpose of this study was to evaluate a methodology which would permit serial EEG recordings and daily amygdaloid kindling stimulations in young rats (16-26 days old). The preparation was sufficient to maintain the developing rats for 26 consecutive days of stimulation and recording and to permit the acquisition of kindled seizures. Developing rats required a slightly greater number of trials to acquire the kindled response than did adult rats in previous studies using a 24-h intertrial interval.
