Abstract

Serum thyroxine levels peak earlier and are significantly higher in audiogenic seizure-susceptible DBA/2J mice than in seizure-resistant C57BL/6J mice during early postnatal life. The seizure susceptibility of DBA/2J mice is suppressed by administration of an antithyroid drug or by radiothyroidectomy, while the seizure susceptibility of C57BL/6J mice is enchanced by treatment with excess thyroxine.
