Figure 1: The effect of aqueous extract of Cucurbita pepo on the status of brain parenchymal histology performed in brain cortical tissue slices (×20). (a) In control group showing normal intact cell morphology. (b) Strong intense darkly stained nuclei showing swollen neurons and glial cell bodies. (c) Mice received lipopolysaccharide + aqueous extract of Cucurbita pepo showed significantly reduced darkly stained and swollen cells compared to inducer group. (d) Group of mice that received aqueous extract of Cucurbita pepo alone almost similar to normal control group. Statistically significant (P > 0.05) results were presented. Values compared a with b. b with c and d. ***Significantly different from Group I(ND) (P<0.05). ###Significantly different from Group II (LPS) (P<0.05)
