Rhythm of oscillations in cerebral cortex, key to understand Down Syndrome

Scientists from the Centre for Genomic Regulation, led by Dr. Mara Dierssen, and from the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS), led by Dr. Mavi Sánchez Vives, describe altered oscillations and synchronization in the cerebral cortex for a Down syndrome candidate gene in a mouse model. Such alterations have been linked to problems with functions as relevant as decision-making, impulsiveness, working memory or attention. This research has been published in the current issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.
