Mean + SEM density of DCX-expressing cells/mm2 in A–D. a In dorsal hippocampus, maternal postpartum CORT decreased the density of DCX-expressing cells in pre-adolescent males and increased it in adolescent males compared with oil. Males of oil-treated dams also had a greater density of DCX-expressing cells compared with females of oil-treated dams. b In the dorsal hippocampus of adolescent females, maternal postpartum CORT increased the density of DCX-expressing cells compared with oil. However, in adulthood, maternal postpartum CORT decreased the density of DCX-expressing cells in females. c In the ventral hippocampus of adolescent males, maternal postpartum CORT increased the density of DCX-expressing cells compared with oil. d In the ventral hippocampus of females, maternal postpartum CORT did not significantly alter the density of DCX-expressing cells. @p < 0.05, males vs. females; *p < 0.05, oil vs. CORT; n = 5–7/sex/group
