Statistical analysis of total spine density on active and inactive neurons

  • Bonferroni's post-hoc analysis of total spine density on active and inactive neurons within experimental protocols. FC caused a decrease in spine density on active compared to inactive neurons of the FC group. A difference between active and inactive neuron spine density within experimental protocols is not seen for HC, CT, or UP. Values represent mean spine number ± SEM per 30 μm dendrite. Statistical comparisons were made relative to group designated by black box within each row. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001. IA, Inactive neurons; A, active neurons. HC (n = 9 mice, 2015 spines), CT (n = 10 mice, 4131 spines), FC (n = 11 mice, 3998 spines), UP (n = 8 mice, 4241 spines).
