Figure 1

The effects of three doses of TPLB on OVX-induced anxiety- and depression-like behavior and cognitive performance. (a) Duration in the central zone in the open-field test (OFT); (b) number of entries into the central zone in the OFT; (c) duration in open arms in the elevated plus maze (EPM) test; (d) number of entries into the open arms in EPM; (e) percentage of sucrose consumption in the sucrose preference test (SPT); (f) immobility time of forced swimming test (FST); (g) immobility time of the tail suspension test (TST). Data are expressed as () and examined with one-way ANOVA, followed by post hoc Dunnett’s test. (h) Escape latency in the acquisition trials; (i–m) representative individual swim paths in the probe trial of the sham group (i), OVX group (j), OVX-PL group (k), OVX-PM group (l), OVX- PH group (m); (n) swimming speed in the probe trial; (o) duration in the target zone in the probe trial; (p) entry number into the target zone in the probe trial; (q) latency to the target zone in the probe trial. Data are expressed as () and examined with two-way analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and one-way ANCOVA, followed by post hoc Dunnett’s test: , , and vs. the Sham group; #, ##, and ### vs. the OVX group. Different color symbols in (h) indicate the corresponding groups.
