Environmental Enrichment helps recover from Stroke by accelerating the creation of new blood vessels around the infarct

From a paper published in Mar. 2023 in the Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience

Chen X, Liu L, Zhong Y, Liu Y. Enriched environment promotes post-stroke angiogenesis through astrocytic interleukin-17A. Front Behav Neurosci. 2023 Feb 16;17:1053877. doi: 10.3389/fnbeh.2023.1053877. PMID: 36873773; PMCID: PMC9979086.

Environmental Enrichment is known to help recover from a stroke. Individuals exposed to Environmental Enrichment see:

This latest research aimed at identifying some of the underlying mechanisms to help us understand what happens exactly in the brain when it is stimulated in an enriched environment.

As in previous studies, they saw that the individuals improved in the areas mentioned above. They also saw that Environmental Enrichment leads to an increase in the creation of blood vessels (angiogenesis) around the area affected by the stroke (infarct). They also that the damaged area reduced in size.
