Neurological function score, nissl staining, infarct area. (A, B) Neurological function scores and infarct area in control and physical exercise group (n=10). (C) Nissl staining of brain tissues at 14 days after transient MCAO. The location of infarct area was labelled by black stars, and the peri-infarct region was labelled by black squares. Values are mean ± SD, * p< 0.05, *** p< 0.001. Scale bar in C apply to C. PE = physical exercise and Con = control.
