Fig. 5

PbA-infected mice presented long-lasting increase in anxious-related behaviour. The distance travelled (a) in the centre zone was evaluated in the open field task training session (n = 22, combining 2 experiments). The time spent in the light compartment (b) was evaluated in the light/dark task (n = 12). Data are reported as the mean ± SEM and were analysed by unpaired Student’s t-test. *P < 0.05 compared to the non-infected animals. See Methods for behavioural task description. Abbreviations: Non-inf mice, uninfected and PBS treated mice; PbA-inf mice, infected and chloroquine treated mice
