Figure 1 Sevoflurane post-treatment attenuates cognitive impairment in HIBI neonatal rats. (A) Escape latency of rats in each group assessed by Morris water maze test, N=18, # P<0.001, Sham group vs HI group; * P<0.001, HI group vs HI+S group. (B) The platform crossing times of rats in each group measured by spatial probe test, N=18. (C) The cerebral infarct size in rats of each group measured by TTC staining, N=6. The data are expressed as the mean±standard deviation. The data between groups were analyzed by one-way ANOVA, followed by Tukey’s multiple comparisons test. * P<0.05.
