Table 2 Behavioral performance in the Probe Trial

From: Vitamin D mitigates age-related cognitive decline through the modulation of pro-inflammatory state and decrease in amyloid burden

  Errors (n) Time spent in correct quadrant (%)
Young CON 1.51 ± 0.27 62% ± 2.93
Young vitamin D 1.60 ± 0.32 65% ± 3.40
Aged CON 3.25 ± 0.21a 41% ± 3.17a
Aged vitamin D 2.49 ± 0.35b 52% ± 3.02b
  1. Aged CON rats made more mistakes in the probe trial compared to all groups, while the aged rats that received vitamin D supplementation performed slightly better but still remained impaired when compared to the young rats.
  2. a P <0.01.
  3. b P <0.05.
