One model that has been used to investigate the neurobiological substrates associated with sex diVerences in seizure susceptibility is infusions of muscimol, a -aminobutyric acid (GABAA) receptor agonist, to the substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNR). , 2003). Infusions of muscimol to the SNR at postnatal day 15 (PND15), produce seizures among male, but not female, rats (Velı´sˇkova´ and Moshe´, 2001). , 2003). These findings suggest that sex diVerences in seizure susceptibility occur early in development and may be somewhat independent of the activational eVects of steroids that begin to be secreted at puberty.
This has implications both for prognosis and for our understanding of seizure pathophysiology. Before going into details of these interesting diVerences, it is important to briefly review the classification of epilepsy, and to explain some methodological principles that are important in interpreting epidemiologic studies of epilepsy. II. Classification of Epilepsy and Seizures Classification of seizures and epilepsy syndromes is an important part of clinical work.

18 MCHUGH AND DELANTY consistent with the greater risks for lesional epilepsy in elderly males. Within this, generalized epilepsies are more common in females in the first year of life, after which incidences for both genders converge and remain similar until 45 years, when a slight male excess becomes apparent (Fig. 4). Generalized epilepsy syndromes characterized by absence seizures were diagnosed typically in childhood and early adulthood, as was the greatest incidence of generalized myoclonic epilepsies.
