  1. 1. Effects of the environmental model depend on:1. Experimental (animal) model2. Type of intervention: enrichment, running, toys etc.3. Duration4. Age of animals5. Gender
  2. 2. Environmental Enrichment:1. Multiple effects= multiple signaling pathways?1. If multiple pathways- do they all lead to the same downstream effect?3. If not, how do we identify the critical signal(s)?
  3. 3. Amelioration of pathology: Reduced amyloidosis in FAD transgenic mice following an enriched environment Standard Housing Enriched Hippocampus Cortex Cortex Hippocampus 25 Relative level (Arbitrary Units) Relative level (Arbitrary Units) 25 20 20 15 * 15 ** 10 10 5 5 0 0 Standard Housing Enriched Standard Housing Enriched

  7. 7. Hippocampal LTP is enhanced following environmental enrichment
  8. 8. Does EE affect mainly thehippocampus?
  9. 9. Increased connectivity between CA1 and cortical areas in FAD-linked mice Following environmental enrichment Regions that correlated with the extracted time-course from left CA1 and right CA1 for each individual animal. Spin echo anatomical reference T1 weighted images acquired in the coronal plane. Molecularly mediated by cognition-associated signals Little, Foxely and Lazarov, J Alz Dis, 2012
