Hippocampus-dependent memory, but not hippocampus-independent memory or locomotor activity, in mice was impaired by anesthesia/surgery. The OFT was conducted to assess the total distance traveled by the mice at 1 day preoperatively and at postoperative days 1, 3, and 7 (ad). The percent of freezing time during the training session at 1 day preoperatively (e) in the context test (fh) and tone test (ik) were assessed at postoperative days 1, 3, and 7. The data are presented as the means ± standard error of the mean for each group (n = 10). *p < 0.05 compared with the control group
