Figure 6. Results of the forced swimming test after fluoxetine treatment in rats with a normal estrous cycle. (A) Results of immobility duration. (B) Results of immobility number. (C) Results of immobility latency. N, the test in the non-receptive phase; R, the test in the receptive phase. *p<0.05 compared to control group, **p<0.01 compared to the control group, #p<0.05 compared to the model group, ###p<0.001 compared to the model group (n=8 in each group; two-way ANOVA followed by post-hoc Sidak’s multiple comparisons test).
