This study is enrolling eligible young men ages 18–25 with Fragile X syndrome into a study of brain function. The 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 will 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.
