Edited by Subrata Dey

West Bengal University of Technology

This book provides a concise yet comprehensive source of current information on Down syndrome. It focuses on exciting areas of research on diseases associated with Down syndrome. Inside, you will find state-of-the-art information on diseases associated with Down syndrome; improvement of cognitive skills in Down syndrome; and research approaches on Down syndrome. Although aimed primarily at research workers on Down syndrome, we hope that the appeal of this book extends beyond the narrow confines of academic interest and reaches a wider audience, especially parents, relatives, and health care providers who work with infants and children with Down syndrome.
