Description

Fragile X syndrome is the most common single genetic cause of autism (Fmr1 gene). Previous studies using Fmr1 KO mice show increased number of astrocytes in the LSO. The study was conducted to determine if the increase in astrocytes is associated with a higher blood vessel density within the LSO.
