Abstract

A study in Nature by Fischer et al. shows that environmental enrichment or increasing histone acetylation rescue the ability to form new memories and re-establish access to remote memories even in the presence of brain degeneration. Chromatin remodeling may be the final gate environmental enrichment opens to enhance plasticity and represents a promising target for therapeutical intervention in neurodegenerative diseases.
