Contribute DS article: Special Issue of Brain Sciences

As guest editor, Dr. Alberto Costa of Case Western Reserve University, invites T21RS members to contribute articles to a Special Issue of Brain Sciences. We will be discussing the general topic of Down syndrome pathology, Cognitive Assessments and Potential Therapies. We aim to highlight critical areas of translation and clinical brain research that may one day lead to the discovery of pharmacological/genetic ways of addressing the neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative processes, associated with trisomy or chromosome 21.  We will welcome articles describing systems-specific neuropsychological deficits and neurological and psychiatric disorders commonly found in persons with Down syndrome, new experimental data (collected from human beings and animal models) and reviews on the neurobiology and neuropharmacology of Down syndrome, and critical reviews on the design and conduct of clinical trials in this field. We hope we can count on your valuable contribution to make this a successful and impactful Special issue for this journal. Click HERE for more specific info on this special opportunity.
