Neurological change

Neurological change

When we talk about “neurological” change in this context, we usually mean changes in the central nervous system. The central nervous system includes the brain and spinal cord.
Everyone’s brain changes constantly over time, and in this sense we are all constantly undergoing neurological change. There are also specific neurological changes which tend to occur over time as people develop and grow up. It is possible that there are certain different or additional neurological changes as people with CdLS grow up, which might explain some of the possible changes we see in people’s behaviour. However, further research would be needed to assess whether or not this is the case.
