Standardized test battery to aid those with Down syndrome
Date:1/12/2009

om private foundations that get their money from families with kids with Down syndrome and want to see this research go forward."

"What it will make possible is a way of assessing kids, but also for assessing the efficacy of clinical trials. That's been missing. There's always been lots of anecdotal stories about the value of ginkgo or vitamin E. What has been lacking in the field has been some sort of solid scientific way of assessing the virtues of and value of things. So, parents are very excited that we're getting close to having this kind of measurement tool."

The research has also drawn interest from UA students. Nadel said this avenue of research is an area where the rewards are obvious.

"One of the most exciting things is how many students want to work on this project. Six or seven right now. It's been an immediate hit. This is good and interesting science and connects to the real world and they can sink their teeth into it and make a difference. It's been a magnet for undergraduate students who want to get involved in research, in something connected to the world."

"This one of those perfect examples of how teaching and research mesh completely. In the classroom you talk about brain development and cognition and how it goes right and how it goes wrong. Here is the opportunity for undergrads to actually go in and discover something about that process and make a difference."
