Figure 9: The PCR bands and their relative intensities for brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and cAMP-response element-binding (CREB) protein in the hippocampus of rats that received chronic CORT administration. Data were analyzed via separate one-way ANOVAs followed by Tukey’s post hoc test. * and ***   versus the CON group; # and ##   versus the CORT group. Vertical bars indicate SE.
