Enriched Environment Procedures for Rodents: Creating a Standardized Protocol for Diverse Enrichment to Improve Consistency across Research Studies
Authors:  Bruce C. Harland and John C. Dalrymple-Alford, date: 06/05/2020, view: 369, Q&A: 0
Exposure to environmental enrichment has beneficial effects on learning and memory, diverse neurobiological effects, and promotes recovery of function after brain injury. The effect of enrichment is produced by a combination of increased social ...
