Proliferation study. EA increases the proliferative cells in the DG of the stressed rats. (a) Representative microphotographs showing BrdU-positive cells (administered 24 h before killing) in DG of rats in different groups. The red square in the schematic drawing indicates the regions of microphotographs shown in (a). Scale bar corresponds to 100 μm. Bar gram in panel (b) depicts (mean ± SE) the quantification of the proliferation study showing the number of BrdU-positive cells in 3 experimental groups. , * , and ** , versus Normal group; # , versus Model group.
