Astrocytic plasticity as a possible mediator of the cognitive improvements after environmental enrichment in aged rats.

Abstract

Currently, little is known about the effect of environmental enrichment (EE) on astrocytic plasticity, especially during aging. Given the newly discovered role of the astrocytes in regulating the synaptic transmission and thereby, the cognitive functions, we aimed to study the impact of EE on the performance in a spatial memory task and on the number and… (More)
