Exploration time in training (A) and testing trials (B), and discrimination index (C) in 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) (n = 5 per group; *p < 0.05, vs. familiar object; ap < 0.05, vs. control group; bp < MeHg-treated group). All data are shown as % exploration time ± standard error of the mean. Note that training trial does not show any remarkable differences on exploration time. In contrast, control group shows increased exploration time in new object compared to that in the MeHg group, while exploration time is decreased in MeHg group. In the MeHg+DML and MeHg+GAL groups, exploration time in new object is increased. In addition, discrimination index is significantly decreased in the MeHg group compared to that in the control group. In the MeHg+DML and MeHg+GAL group, discrimination index is remarkably increased compared to that in the MeHg group
