Fig. 1. Schematic diagram of the experimental procedure and linear graphs of body weight changes. (A) Mice received one intraperitoneal injection per week of vehicle or AC for 4 consecutive weeks (syringes); this was followed 2 days later by six consecutive daily injections of BrdU. OFT, open field test; ORM, novel object recognition memory task; TST, tail suspension test; FST, forced swim test. (B) Animals in all groups gained weight over the course of the study, as expected on the basis of their starting age of 2 months. Mice treated with AC tended to same weight-gain tendency over the course of the study compared to vehicle-treated animals. No significant differences were observed between vehicle- and AC-treated mice in the rate of weight gain. Data are expressed as means±SEs.
