Additional file 1: Figure S1. of Hippocampus-based contextual memory alters the morphological characteristics of astrocytes in the dentate gyrus

Morphological changes in astrocytes were examined in the auditory cortex. (A) Morphological analysis of type III astrocytes by sholl analysis. (Immunofluorescence for GFAP, gradation from red to blue; depth of Z-projection is 0-30 μm, Concentric circles are spaced at 10 μm). (B) Number of intersections between each circle and processes of type III astrocytes in auditory cortex from control, 1 h and 24 h groups (Control, N = 5, n = 15; 1 h, 6 = 10, n = 22; 24 h, 5 = 8, n = 16).
