ABSTRACT
The postischemic brain has greater susceptibility to epileptogenic activity than physiologically healthy tissue. Epileptiform discharges are thought to exacerbate postischemic brain function. The aim of this study was to develop an in vivo focal stroke model in rats to characterize epileptiform activity.
