Schneider, Andrea; Ligsay, Andrew; Hagerman, Randi J.
Developmental Disabilities Research Reviews, v18 n1 p68-74 Aug 2013
Cognitive and behavioral correlates of molecular variations related to the FMR1 gene have been studied rather extensively, but research about the long-term outcome in individuals with fragile X spectrum disorders remains sparse. In this review, we present an overview of aging research and recent findings in regard to cellular and clinical manifestations of aging in fragile X syndrome, and the FMR1 premutation.
