Planarian seizure-like activity (pSLA) is defined as asynchronous paroxysms resulting in a sudden disruption of normal spontaneous locomotor activity, in response to proconvulsive drugs [28, 29].
Furthermore, several antidepressants are known to lower the seizure threshold in susceptible patients (Rosenstein et al., 1993; Trimble et al., 1977; Trimble, 1978), and buspirone was also reported to be proconvulsive in mice (Vohora and Pillai, 1998).
