Mean + SEM density of DCX-expressing cells/mm2 in a, b. a Maternal postpartum FLX did not significantly alter the density of DCX-expressing cells in male offspring. b In pre-adolescent female offspring, maternal postpartum FLX decreased the density of DCX-expressing cells in the dorsal hippocampus compared with SAL. There were no other significant effects of sex, CORT, or FLX in ventral hippocampus. *p < 0.05, saline vs. FLX; n = 5–7/sex/group
