EB study: Effect of DHA treatment on behavior. DHA or saline treatments were administered at 1 h after 2 h of MCAo. Total neurologic score (normal = 0, maximal deficits = 12) was measured during MCAo and then at 6, 24, 48 and 72 h after MCAo. DHA-treated animals displayed improved neurologic deficits at 24, 48 and 72 h after MCAo compared to the matching saline group. Values are mean ± SEM; n = 8-12 rats per group. *Significantly different from corresponding saline group (p < 0.05, repeated measures ANOVA followed by Bonferroni tests).
