[Article in Russian]


In the paper the analysis is given of "penicillin" epilepsy in animals (cats) in conditions of different forms of deafferentation of one of the halves of the fore brain. It is shown, that in conditions of combined section of one half of the operculum of the midbrain and commissural systems of the endbrain, diencephalon and midbrain, under large doses of penicillin, unilateral convulsive activity is recorded in summate electrical activity of one of the brain halves at the side of the midbrain lesion. After the completion of unilateral organization of the epileptic process an asymmetrical sleep takes place: at the side, at which epileptiform activity was recorded, a more deep phase of the sleep appears than in the opposite brain half.
