The effect of enriched housing of Alzheimer's disease (AD) transgenic mice is still in dispute. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether enriched environment treatment will cause macrostructural changes in the brain of APPswe/PS1dE9 transgenic mice. Deformation-based morphormetry (DBM) was used to analyze the anatomical magnetic resonance imaging data.
