Mice transmit acquired adaptability to their offspring

If mice grow up in a stimulating environment, their brain remains adaptable for longer. In fact, not only these mice, but also their offspring, benefit. The offspring also have increased plasticity of the brain – even if they did not grow up in this environment. This is what a team from the Collaborative Research Centre 889 “Cellular Mechanisms of Sensory Processing” at the University of Göttingen has discovered. Results were published in the journal eNeuro.
