Effects of α7 nAChR inhibitors on the hippocampal production of inflammatory cytokines. An α7 nAChR inhibitor MLA or saline vehicle solution (Veh) was administered 20 min prior to aVNS in CS animals, and proteins were extracted from hippocampal tissues for western blot analysis. Upper images in AC are the representatives of 4–5 independent experiments for IL-1β, IL-6, and TNF-α proteins. Quantification of protein band intensity relative to actin is plotted in lower panels. **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001 (One-way ANOVA)
