Figure 2: Microscopic images of the CA1 region in male rats of different groups (5-μm thick sections, cresyl violet staining, magnification × 100); micrograph of the CA1 section in the normal groups (a), the normal number of neurons in the CA1 region; micrograph of the CA1 section in the NIC group (b), decreased number of neurons due to the oxidative stress caused by NIC; micrograph of the hippocampal region CA1 section in the CUM (60 mg/kg) group (c), the normal number of neurons; micrograph of hippocampal region CA1 section in NIC + CUM (30 mg/kg) (d) and NIC + CUM (60 mg/kg) (e) groups (d), normal number of neurons; red arrows indicating the pyramidal neuron cells. NIC = Nicotine, CUM = Curcumin, CA1 = Cornu ammonis 1
