(a) Experimental protocol. (b, c) Gastric emptying rates after corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) intracerebroventricular (ICV) administration at 0.3 μg/mouse (b; n = 7 in each group) and 1.0 μg/mouse (c; n = 7 in vehicle-treated and n = 8 in CRF-treated group). (d) Gastric emptying rates after the administration of CRF (0.3 μg/mouse, ICV) and bukuryoingohangekobokuto (BGH; 0.5 and 1.0 g/kg, orally); n = 18 in vehicle-treated group, n = 16 in CRF group, n = 14 in CRF/BGH (0.5 g/kg) group, and n = 18 in CRF/BGH (1.0 g/kg) group. Data are means ± SE. by Student’s t-test or Aspin−Welch t-test. by Dunnett test.
