The Future of Down Syndrome, Improving Memory and Cognition
The mapping of human genome, and the creation of advanced technologies for neuroscience research, has opened up a whole new world of opportunities in the field of Down syndrome research. Come and learn about how recent studies are beginning to identify the gene(s) responsible for cognitive impairment and exploring drug therapies to restore the function of neuronal circuits affected by Down syndrome. For the first time, neuroscience discoveries are creating the hope that in time everyone with Down syndrome will be able to live independently.
