The effects of SM extract on chronic BCCAo-induced microglial proliferation in white matter and the hippocampus. a Photomicrographs illustrating Iba-1-positive cells in the corpus callosum, fimbria, and optic tract. b Photomicrographs illustrating Iba-1-positive cells in the hippocampal subregions. c Quantitative analysis of the number of Iba-1-positive cells in the corpus callosum, fimbria, and optic tract. d Quantitative analysis of the number of Iba-1-positive cells in the hippocampal subregions. Sham-control group (n = 6), BCCAo + vehicle group (n = 7), and BCCAo + SM group (n = 7). Data are presented as means ± S.D. ##p < 0.01 compared with sham-control; *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01 compared with BCCAo + vehicle. Original magnification 40× for whole hippocampus and 200× for the other regions. Scale bar on entire hippocampus represents 250 μm and the other subregions represent 50 μm
