Astrocyte Contribution to Sensory Hypersensitivity in Fragile X Syndrome

Astrocyte Contribution to Sensory Hypersensitivity in Fragile X Syndrome

Most Fragile X research has focused on one type of brain cells: neurons. But mounting evidence point to problems with astrocytes, star-shaped cells which are vitally important to normal brain function. This team is working to understand how astrocytes are involved in Fragile X and develop treatment approaches that targets astrocytes alone.
