Figure 1 Effects of electroacupuncture (EA) on histopathological changes in the internal capsule (IC) of middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) rats. (A) Micrographs of hematoxylin and eosin (HE) staining in the IC. (B) Micrographs of Luxol fast blue (LFB) staining in the IC. (C) Quantification of the vesicle area. (D) Quantification of the average optical density of myelin sheath. Scale bars: 50 μm, magnification: ×400, values are expressed as mean±standard deviation (n=5), * P<0.05 compared with sham-operated group and # P<0.05 compared with model group.
