Effect of ICV administration of testosterone and DMSO on acquisition of spatial memory in Morris water maze task. a Comparison latency time to reach hidden platform. The figure shows that gonadectomy (GDX-vehicle group) caused memory impairments via increasing latency on test day. The rats receiving 40 µg/0.5 µl dose of testosterone showed significant decrease in latency at compared to the GDX-vehicle group on test day. Data are presents as mean. *P ≤ 0.05 means significant. b Representative swim traces in Morris water maze test
