BACKGROUND Down syndrome is associated with significant failure in cognitive function. Our previous investigation revealed age-dependent degeneration of locus coeruleus, a major player in contextual learning, in the Ts65Dn mouse model of Down syndrome. We studied whether drugs already available for use in humans can be used to improve cognitive function in these mice. METHODS We studied the status of β adrenergic signaling in the dentate gyrus of the Ts65Dn mouse model of Down syndrome… CONTINUE READING
