Temporal changes in dendritic arborization of BLA neurons following acute CORT treatment. Acute CORT treatment elicited an increase in dendritic arborization 12 days after the treatment. The increase in dendritic arborization was manifested as increases in total dendritic length (A) and total number of branch points (B), and segmental analysis revealed an increase in dendritic arborization along a wide range of dendritic segments (C). Representative camera lucida drawings of Golgi-impregnated BLA pyramidal neurons for vehicle- or CORT- treated groups with various delay periods after the treatment (D).*, P < 0.05; **, P < 0.01; ***, P < 0.001 (post hoc Bonferroni test).
