03 Jul Infant Brain Imaging Study – Brain Development in Down Syndrome (IBIS)
The University of Washington Autism Center is enrolling infants with Down Syndrome and typically developing infants between the ages of Birth-6 months old. The goal of the study is to increase our understanding of how the brain is affected in children with Down syndrome, to eventually help identify therapeutic targets for interventions for individuals with Down syndrome. Participants will complete developmental assessments and an MRI of the brain (during natural sleep) at 6, 12, and 24 months of age.
Infants between the ages of Birth – 6 months who have Down Syndrome.
Infants between the ages of Birth – 6 months who are typically developing and who have an older sibling who is typically developing.
