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.

The UC Davis MIND Institute is currently recruiting study research participants. The study’s goal is to better understand the ways in which characteristics of mothers and fathers and relationships within the family influence the language learning environment of young boys with Fragile X syndrome.
This survey will help support families in the Early Check study in NC whose newborns have been diagnosed with Fragile X and inform the design of an early intervention program for these babies.
RTI Int’l and UNC at Chapel Hill are conducting a research study to learn more about early development of young children with Fragile X in North Carolina, and the experiences of their parents when obtaining the diagnosis and early intervention services.
A survey to measure levels of behavior. When someone with FXS is experiencing anxiety, describe what you see and hear, and how the experience impacts your/their quality of life.
