Notch1 signaling plays time-dependent roles in the sequential process of neurogenesis after stroke. In this study, we aim to detect the appropriate therapeutic time frame of DAPT treatment based on the Notch1 signaling activation and NSCs responses after stroke. Combing the in vivo monitor of comprehensive microstructure changes with diffusion MRI and the in vitro analysis of neurogenesis and remyelination with immunohistology, we ultimately demonstrate the neurorestorative effects of DAPT treatment at the subacute stage after stroke. Our results suggested the appropriate therapeutic time window of inhibiting Notch1 signaling to maximally promote endogenous neurogenesis and axonal reorganization, which could enhance the efficacy of Notch-1 signaling related therapy and promote its application to clinical trials.
