Abstract
The susceptibility of mice to seizures at hyperbaric pressures of oxygen (OHP) was placed on a quantitative basis and compared with the corresponding rate of decrease in brain GABA concentration. The influence of small amounts of carbon dioxide in the breathing mixture on these effects of OHP was also determined.
