Within the hypothalamus, ABA curtails the increase in microglia staining induced by high-fat diet (HFD). Map showing the location of the analyzed hypothalamus (a). Anterior (bregma −1.80 mm) and medial (bregma −3.12 mm) hypothalamus were used for quantification (b). HFD fed rats (c); HFD-ABA (d); standard diet, SD (e); and SD-ABA (f). Calibration bar, 200 μm (cf). Data is represented as the mean ± SEM of density of cells per mm2 (n = 6). Data were analyzed using one-way ANOVA followed by post hoc Newman–Keuls test; *, p < 0.05 vs. HFD. The reactive microglia are shown in the insets at high magnification. Calibration bar, 50 μm
