Facilitation of kindled seizures in rats fed choline-supplemented diets.


Different groups of rats were maintained on choline-deprived (CD), choline-supplemented (CS) or standard rat chow diets beginning at a body weight of approximately 100 g, and electrically kindled in the amygdala beginning not less than 40 days later. The CS group kindled significantly faster than the CD group, whereas the CD and chow-fed groups did not differ in their rate of kindling. This result is consistent with both the known effects of the dietary manipulation of choline on brain acetylcholine level, and the idea that acetylcholine has a role in amygdaloid kindling.
