Excitability and spike width) are at fully mature levels (46). These results indicate that in the rat hippocampus, excitatory processes are well established or fully mature within 2 weeks after birth, whereas the maturation of inhibitory processes to adult levels may not be achieved until several weeks later (46). Two additional features should be discussed here. First, in the hippocampus and other structures in the immature rats, gamma-aminobutyric acidA (GABAA) receptors have been shown to have depolarizing effects and at times mediate excitatory events (19, 47, 48).

Male rats had significantly more BrdU-positive cells than controls, while there was no difference in female rats. The model of hyperthermic seizures in normal brain has been further developed by using a neuroimmune challenge with lipopolysaccharide to increase body temperature while concurrently a subconvulsive dose of kainic acid has been administered. This treatment resulted in seizures in about 50% of rats with no neuropathology (253). Other studies concentrated on compromising the young brain with a hypoxic insult (254–257).

Is seizure-induced hippocampal damage developmentally regulated (267)? Seizure-Induced Structural Hippocampal Damage Studies in adult animals have shown that severe or repeated seizures can indeed induce hippocampal damage (268–274). In the adult rats, kainic acid or pilocarpine administration or electric stimulation produce status epilepticus and hippocampal damage. 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).
