Figure 3: Values of maximal angle animals could cling to an inclined plane for sham-operated rats ((b) first column), 37°C saline-treated FPI rats ((b) second column), and 4°C saline-treated FPI rats ((b) third column). The saline solutions were administered via the jugular vein 3 minutes after the onset of FPI. The data were obtained on day 3 after surgery. Values are mean ± SEM; per group. versus sham-operated controls; versus 37°C saline-treated FPI rats.
