Inhibiting Inhibition to Treat Down Syndrome Symptoms
By targeting one specific type of inhibitory brain receptor, researchers have been able to improve neural function and memory in a mouse model of Down syndrome. The findings give additional support to the idea that some neurodevelopmental disorders can be reversed, at least partially, after they are established.
The team published their findings in the Feb. 27, 2013, issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.
