Inhibitory Signals in Brain May Underlie Breathing Problems in Rett

Abnormally slow or shallow breathing in Rett syndrome develops in part due to altered inhibitory signals in the brain, research done in a rat model of the disease suggests. Data also indicate that therapeutic approaches that amplify the brain’s inhibitory signals might be useful for Rett-related breathing problems. These findings were in the study “In vivo evidence for the cellular basis of central hypoventilation of Rett syndrome and pharmacological correction in the rat model,” published in…
