We found that an enriched environment (EE) could delay the loss of myelinated fibers in the white matter of rats during normal aging. However, the reasons for the protective effects of EE on the myelinated fibers were unclear. In this present study, via the use of stereological methods, we quantitatively investigated the myelin sheaths and the axons of(More)
