Then, for seven days the rats were placed in a 12:12 h sleep–wake cycle in ideal states (normal moisture, 65 ± 5%; temperature, 23 ± 1 °C). The current research is confirmed by the Ethics Committee of Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences (Ethics code: IR.AJUMS.ABHC.REC. 1397.069). This study followed was in accordance with the standards set forth in the eighth edition of “Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals” (grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/guide-for-the-care-and-use-of-laboratory-animals_prepub.pdf published by the National Academy of Sciences, The National Academies Press, Washington, D.C.).
