The cover photo shows the effect of Centella asiatica extract on the protection of hippocampal neurons in TMT mice.
The density of cresyl violet-stained cells in CA1 and CA3 regions were analysed by Image-J software. The results showed that mice exposed to TMT had a severe loss of pyramidal neurons in the hippocampal CA1 and CA3 regions and that the administration of Centella asiatica extract (150 and 300 mg/kg) prevented the TMT-induced damage in the CA1 and CA3 regions. The upper, middle, and bottom panels are representative photos obtained from the naïve group, water-treated TMT group, and centella asiatica extract-treated TMT groups (150 and 300 mg/kg), respectively.
