Environmental Enrichment Induces Synaptic Structural Modification After Transient Focal Cerebral Ischemia in Rats
TLDR
The data suggest that improved spatial memory of cerebral ischemic rats by EE is associated with structural modifications of synaptic junctions in several brain regions.
Dentate Gyrus Neurogenesis after Cerebral Ischemia and Behavioral Training
TLDR
The results suggest that the adult brain has an inherent regenerative capacity after insult and that behavioral training following injury does not have an additive effect on neurogenesis.
Electrophysiological correlates of neural plasticity compensating for ischemia-induced damage in the hippocampus
TLDR
Electrophysiological changes associated with ischemia-induced neurogenesis in the hippocampus, a brain region that is particularly vulnerable but also exceptionally plastic, are examined.
The Effects of Enriched Environment on Structural Modification of Synaptic Interface and PSD-95 mRNA of Rats after Transient Focal Cerebral Ischemia
TLDR
The results suggest that the enriched environment significantly promoted spatial learning and memory in MCAO rats, and restrained the reduction of the synaptic density caused by cerebral ischemia,particularly in the frontal cortex.
Modulation of ischemia-induced NMDAR1 activation by environmental enrichment decreases oxidative damage.
TLDR
The results suggest that EE housing possibly modulated the ischemia-induced glutamate excitotoxicity, which then attenuated the oxidative damage and neurodegeneration in the is chemia EE rats.

Behavioral Effects of Transient Cerebral Ischemia
TLDR
Cell loss is largely confined to CA1 region in rats who received 5 and 10 min of ischemia and that increased ischemic duration results in persistent learning deficits in female rats; also, the degree of behavioral impairment is related to extent of CA1 cell loss.

TLDR
The middle cerebral artery was ligated distal to the striatal branches in 25 male spontaneously hypertensive rats to investigate if early training without immobilization of the intact forelimb could increase tissue loss and reduce recovery.

TLDR
It is concluded that housing rats in an enriched environment significantly increases spine density in superficial cortical layers in intact and lesioned brain, but in deeper layers of intact brain.
Ultrastructural Changes of Neuronal Mitochondria After Transient and Permanent Cerebral Ischemia
TLDR
The role of reperfusion of the cerebral cortex after transient focal cerebral ischemia on neuronal mitochondrial damage is examined to examine the role of oxygen free radical production in the observed mitochondrial damage during postischemic reoxygenation.
Multiple synapse formation in the motor cortex opposite unilateral sensorimotor cortex lesions in adult rats

TLDR
Stereological measures and data indicate that a major restructuring of synaptic connectivity occurs in the cortex opposite FLsmc lesions in adult animals, guided by ongoing changes in the use of the forelimbs.
Enhanced neurogenesis after transient global ischemia in the dentate gyrus of the rat
TLDR
The hypothesis that survival of dentate gyrus after ischemic episode is linked with enhanced neurogenesis is supported and additional physiological stimulation after ischemia may be exploited to stimulate maturation of new neurons and to offer new therapeutic strategies for promoting recovery of neuronal circuitry in the injured brain.
Motor Skills Training Enhances Lesion-Induced Structural Plasticity in the Motor Cortex of Adult Rats
TLDR
Findings suggest that adaptive neural plasticity may be enhanced using behavioral manipulations as “therapy,” and support a link between behavioral experience and structural plasticity after brain damage.
Use-Dependent Exaggeration of Neuronal Injury after Unilateral Sensorimotor Cortex Lesions
TLDR
The results suggest that although behavioral experience can enhance neural growth after brain injury, the region surrounding the injury may be vulnerable to behavioral pressure during the early postlesion period.
