Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) is accompanied by reduced ventilatory sensitivity to CO2 and O2, respiratory drive failure during sleep, impaired autonomic, fluid, and food absorption regulation, and affective and cognitive deficits, including memory deficiencies. The deficits likely derive from neural injury, reflected as structural damage and impaired functional brain responses to ventilatory and autonomic challenges. Brain structures playing essential memory roles… CONTINUE READING
