New research suggests that during decision-making, neurons in the brain are capable of much more complex processing than previously thought.
Early exposure to sounds can address hypersensitivity to noise associated with Fragile X Syndrome
on November 6, 2019 at 7:49 pm
A research team has found exposure to sound -- not sound reduction -- during early development of mice engineered to have Fragile X Syndrome, or FXS, restores molecular, cellular, and functional properties in the auditory cortex, the area of the brain that processes sounds. The results suggest that facilitating exposure to sounds during early age can restore communication between brain cells altered by the gene mutation that leads to FXS.
