Mean + SEM density of DCX-expressing cells/mm2 in a, b. a Maternal postpartum CORT and FLX decreased the density of DCX-expressing cells in the dorsal hippocampus compared with CORT only and FLX only. b In the ventral hippocampus, maternal postpartum CORT and FLX increased the density of DCX-expressing cells in comparison to maternal postpartum FLX only. *p < 0.05. CORT/FLX vs. CORT only or FLX only; n = 5–7/sex/group
