Brains, Behavior, and Girls!
Researchers at Stanford University are studying brain development in relation to behavior, cognition, and mood in girls with fragile X syndrome.
This study is an NIH-funded research project aimed to increase our understanding of the brain during a critical
time of a child’s growth. Information learned from this research can ultimately contribute to an increased
understanding of learning, behavior, and emotion facilitating the development of intervention services/therapies.
We are currently recruiting girls ages 8-12 years with a diagnosis of fragile X syndrome.
