Abstract

Increasing durations of water immersion stress were associated with increased serum corticosterone levels, decreased severity of pentylenetetrazol-induced convulsions, and increased latencies to convulse in rats. The results were interpreted in terms of the effects of stress and pentylenetetrazol's actions on GABAergic mechanisms.
