Fragile X syndrome patients with prematuration had a much earlier onset of neurological problems, including earlier symptoms of neurodegeneration. They also experienced emotional processing problems. Some of the most common emotional processing disorders reported were mood regulation, anxiety, and psychosis.
Researchers report a drug used to slow cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease may help to reverse memory and learning problems in teens who binge drink.
Researchers report neurons in mice with a genetic defect that causes Fragile X are similar to those in mice without the syndrome, but fail to interact correctly. This failure results in the cognitive impairment associated with FXS.
A new study reports children with Fragile X syndrome show bias toward threatening rather than positive emotion.
According to researchers, maternal immune activation during pregnancy can disrupt the expression of genes and processes associated with Autism.
