Adults: Fragile X Syndrome

Brain Function Study

Enrolling nationally from around the country

This research seeks to understand how protein formation in the brain is affected in fragile X syndrome (FXS).   Researchers will measure the rate at which the brain makes proteins (protein synthesis) and may identify specific parts of the brain affected in FXS. In the future, measurement of protein synthesis in FXS may help us to develop and test new therapies.
