The effects of SM extract on the chronic BCCAo-induced reduction of MBP in the white matter and hippocampus. a Photomicrographs of MBP positive cells in the hippocampus, fornix, medial septum, fimbria, and corpus callosum. b Levels of MBP in the sham-control group (n = 6), BCCAo + vehicle group (n = 7), and BCCAo + SM group (n = 7). MBP density is expressed as arbitrary units. Data are presented as means ± S.D. #p < 0.05 and ##p < 0.01 compared with sham-control; *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01 compared with BCCAo + vehicle. Original magnification 40× for the hippocampus and 200× for the other regions. Scale bar on hippocampus, fornix, and medial septum represent 250 μm and fimbria and corpus callosum represent 50 μm
