  1. Because astrocytes from the molecular layer of aged mice from standard environment (A SE) were morphologically quite homogeneous (very short Euclidian distances), data is not included here
  2. Y EE young mice from enriched environment; Y SE young mice from standard environment; A EE aged mice from enriched environment
