The ability to learn and remember is an important aspect of human life that is more difficult for individuals with Down Syndrome. Basic research, however, is leading to new approaches that have the promise of improving impaired cognitive functions. Some of these leads involve understanding the roles that sleep and daily rhythms play in our ability to form long-term memories. Other leads involve understanding and altering the neurochemical pathways involved in memory processing. Still other leads come from molecular knowledge of how genes triplicated in DS influence brain development. In his Webinar, Dr. Heller will discuss recent progress in these areas.
