Blood glucose concentrations following KA and following glucose treatment. Blood glucose concentrations measured 3 hours following kainate-induced seizures and 24 hours following an injection of 1 ml of 20% glucose. Note that acute glucose treatment restored blood glucose concentrations to near baseline levels, while kainate administration resulted in a seizure-associated decrease in blood glucose concentration. Data represent the mean ± S.E.M. of at least 5 mice per condition. Asterisk indicates significant difference compared with any other group (ANOVA with post hoc Student Newman Keuls; F=23.61, P<0.001).
