The effects of bombesin, sauvagine, physalaemin and dermorphin on rat CNS were observed. These peptides were administered to non-epileptic and epileptic rats: SEEG and DEEG were recorded. On the normal electrical background activity of rat brain only physalaemin had no effect. All the other peptides gave rise to slow activity with different duration. In the epileptic rat only sauvagine showed no effect whilst physalaemin reduced the epileptic activity, bombesin seemed to strengthen the action of metrazol and dermorphin blocked it at the onset. These observations will undergo FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) analysis.
