Environmental enrichment does not influence hypersynchronous network activity in the Tg2576 mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
The long-lasting effect of this EE protocol on memory capacities in Tg2576 mice is not mediated by a reduction of their cerebral aberrant neuronal activity at early ages.
Regional differences in beta amyloid plaque deposition and variable response to midlife environmental enrichment in the cortex of APP/PS1 mice
TLDR
It is suggested that the PFC region is selectively susceptible to Aβ deposition and less responsive to the attenuating effects of EE, which suggests that the M1 and SS2 regions plateau with respect to A β deposition by 12 months of age and are susceptible to amyloid pathology modification by midlife EE.
Alzheimer-like pathology in murine transgenic models: disease modification by environmental and genetic interventions
TLDR
It is demonstrated that prolonged cognitive and physical activity has no therapeutic benefit on the pathophysiology of this conventional 5XFAD model and suggested a reciprocal effect between NEP and ECE1 activities in young 5xFAD mice.
Limited Effects of Prolonged Environmental Enrichment on the Pathology of 5XFAD Mice
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the effects of physical and cognitive stimulation vary depending on the severity of the pathology of the model and therefore might be more beneficial in models developing a milder AD phenotype.
Cognitive Reserve and Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
It is believed that a better knowledge of the relationship between AD and CR, accompanied by a successful transition of research accomplishments into practice, will impart much relief to individuals suffering from AD.
Modifications of Hippocampal Circuits and Early Disruption of Adult Neurogenesis in the Tg2576 Mouse Model of Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
Disruption of adult hippocampal neurogenesis occurred before network remodeling in this mouse model and therefore may account as an early event in the etiology of Alzheimer’s pathology.

Environmental enrichment improves cognition in aged Alzheimer's transgenic mice despite stable &bgr;-amyloid deposition
TLDR
The results suggest that long-term EE/cognitive stimulation could provide cognitive stabilization or improvement to AD patients through mechanisms independent of A&bgr; deposition and clearance.
Environmental Enrichment Mitigates Cognitive Deficits in a Mouse Model of Alzheimer's Disease
TLDR
It is demonstrated that learning and memory deficits observed in a transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer's disease can be ameliorated by enrichment, and the generation of Aβ in vivo and its impact on the function of the nervous system can be strongly modulated by environmental factors.

Short-Term Environmental Enrichment Rescues Adult Neurogenesis and Memory Deficits in APPSw,Ind Transgenic Mice
TLDR
It is found that short-term EE for 7 weeks efficiently ameliorates early hippocampal-dependent spatial learning and memory deficits in APPSw,Ind transgenic mice.
Activity changes and marked stereotypic behavior precede A β pathology in TgCRND8 Alzheimer mice
The Relationship between Aβ and Memory in the Tg2576 Mouse Model of Alzheimer's Disease
TLDR
It is suggested that A βinsol is a surrogate marker for small assemblies of Aβ that disrupt cognition and occur as intermediates during Aβinsol formation, and they are the first descriptive in vivo data supporting their role in impairing memory.
A specific amyloid-beta protein assembly in the brain impairs memory.
TLDR
It is found that memory deficits in middle-aged Tg2576 mice are caused by the extracellular accumulation of a 56-kDa soluble amyloid-beta assembly, which is proposed to be Abeta*56 (Abeta star 56), which may contribute to cognitive deficits associated with Alzheimer's disease.
