Impairment of neuronal morphology and function in SNORD116 Prader-Willi syndrome mice

Funded Year: 2022

Data from the first year of this project that in the postnatal period mice that lack Snord116 (Snord116del) have dramatic changes in neuronal morphology in both the cortex and hippocampus, brain regions that are essential for cognitive function. In the second phase of this project, we will characterize the electrical activity and functional...
