Analysis of axonal diameters (μm) measured in the injury group and control group
Group Mean diameter of axons measured at each region (χ ± s) Mean diameter of axons of the 3 regions (χ ± s)
Midbrain (cases) Pons (cases) Medulla Oblongata (cases)
Control Group 1 3.70 ± 0.70*(20) 3.95 ± 0.76*(20) 4.20 ± 0.73*(20) 3.95 ± 0.73*(20)
Control Group 2 3.64 ± 0.66*(20) 3.82 ± 0.69*(20) 4.01 ± 0.72*(20) 3.83 ± 0.68*(20)
Injury Group 4.73 ± 0.72(25) 4.78 ± 0.72(25) 5.23 ± 0.72(25) 4.91 ± 0.73(25)
Variance Analysis F = 7.83, P < 0.05 F = 5.16, P < 0.05 F = 8.24, P < 0.05 F = 20.70, P < 0.05

* Relative to the injury group, P < 0.05.
