Deficits in hippocampal neurogenesis cause cognitive impairments in Alzheimer's disease by compromising the memory storage. Augmenting neurogenesis rescues memory by recruiting more new neurons with restored spine density and transcription profile. AD- linked genes regulate the memory stowing neurons.
