  1. i.d.: animal i.d., PRF DN: number of „dark” neurons in the PRF, Bhv.scr.: behavioral scoring with Racine Scale; SE: if Status Epilepticus developed (+) or not (-), EEG: Treiman's EEG phases,
  2. The relative numbers of "dark" neurons averaged from five 60-μm sections of the pontine and medullar reticular formation are expressed with a semi-quantitative grading scale as follows: +: 1-5 "dark" neurons; ++: 5-15 "dark" neurons, +++: 15-30 "dark" neurons.
