Figure 1. Object recognition task. No significant difference was observed in the numbers of crossings and rearings in the habituation session (Student t-test). Data are reported as means ± SEM (A). The sepsis group presented a significant impairment of novel object recognition memory compared to the sham group (B). Results are reported as median (interquartile ranges) recognition indexes in training, short-term (STM) and long-term memory (LTM) retention test trials. N = 10 animals per group. *P < 0.05 compared to the sham group (Mann-Whitney U-test).
