Longitudinal Study of Brain and Cognition in Fragile X Premutation Carriers (TRAX)

Researchers at the UC Davis MIND Institute are examining changes in the brain and cognition associated with aging, in males with the Fragile X premutation compared to those without.

Who can participate?

Males over 45 years old who are either:

  • Carriers of the Fragile X premutation, or
  • Healthy men not carrying the Fragile X premutation

What does the study involve?

  • Two 2-day visits to the MIND Institute over 5 years.
  • Medical history exam.
  • Neuropsychological exam and behavioral testing.
  • MRI and blood draw.
  • In the year between visits, we will mail you additional measures.

What else can be expected?

  • Upon request, families will receive feedback about cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
  • You will be compensated for your time and travel.
  • You will receive a picture of your brain.
