A High-Fat Diet Causes Impairment in Hippocampal Memory and Sex-Dependent Alterations in Peripheral Metabolism

Figure 7

HFD impairs spatial memory independent of sex. No sex- or diet-dependent differences were observed in total object exploration (a), total line crosses, centerline crosses, or time spent in the center (data not shown). However, HFD effects were reported in recognition index (b), the comparison of time exploring object in novel location to total time exploring objects (; ; ).
