Escape latency training trials (a), average speed (cm/sec) (b), frequency of target crossing (c), and time spent in the correct quadrant (d) of the control group, dimethylmercury (MeHg)-treated group, Dendropanax morbifera leaf extract treated group with MeHg (MeHg + DML), and galantamine (GAL) treated group with MeHg (MeHg + GAL) in the Morris water maze task (n = 10; ap < 0.05, vs. control group; bp < MeHg-treated group). Values are mean ± standard error of the mean. Note that escape latency is highest in the MeHg group on days 4 and 5 and it is significantly decreased in the MeHg+DML and MeHg+GAL group on the days 4 and 5. In addition, on the day 6, number of crossings and target quadrant time is significantly decreased in the MeHg group compared to that in the control group and they significantly ameliorated in MeHg+DML and MeHg+GAL group
