Transmission electronic microscopy photomicrographs of the RVLM neurons in the control and SIH groups. The control group showed a number of normal ribosomes, rough endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondrion, and a few autophagic bodies (a). The SIH group showed an increased double membrane structure containing the mitochondrion (b) in comparison with the control (c). AVs are marked with the yellow arrow and blue arrows indicate the mitochondrion. N nucleus. Scale bar, 2 μm. Values are mean ± SEM of four animals in each group. *P < 0.05 vs. control rats in the post hoc Scheffé multiple range analysis
