Values are mean SEM; as compared to artificial cerebrospinal fluid- (ACSF-) injected group; as compared to colchicine-injected group; as compared to CA (150) COL group; (repeated measures two-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s test for multiple comparisons). Note: ACSF: artificial cerebrospinal fluid; COL: colchicine; CA: Centella asiatica.
