In September 2016, Dr. Jane Roberts was awarded funding by the National Institute of Mental Health for the project entitled: Emergence, Stability and Predictors of Anxiety in Fragile X Syndrome. It is the first longitudinal developmental study of the early features of anxiety in very young boys with FXS contrasted to boys diagnosed with ASD (non-FXS) and typical controls. The study analyzes the age which initial features of anxiety can be detected and the stability and prognostic value of these early symptoms. Our lab is eager to start work on this exciting new project!!
