Ras-grf mice have defective long-term potentiation (LTP), "a form of synaptic plasticity that is known to be important for learning and memory." In previous studies, the researchers had observed that this temporary exposure to an enriched environment leads to normal LTP in these mice for about 2 months before dropping to defective LTP levels found in unexposed ras-grf mice.
