Understanding the Neurobiology of Temper Outburst Behaviors in Prader-Willi Syndrome

Funded Year: 2013

Understanding temper outbursts are a significant challenge in PWS, and little is known about why they happen so frequently.  The investigators will use brain imaging to better understand GABA receptor activation across brain regions in times of frustration for those with PWS.
