Earlier this year, in a philosophical post, we considered whether children with a genetic disorder called Angelman syndrome are happy. Angelman syndrome is a rare disorder that many of our readers have never heard of, and one that our co-editor-in-chief Joel Frohlich has spent much time researching as a neuroscience grad student and postdoc.
In this infographic, neuroscientist Rajamani Selvam tells us more about this rare disorder. What is Angelman syndrome, what causes it, and what are the clinical features of this genetic disorder? You can also learn more about Angelman syndrome from the Angelman Syndrome Foundation at www.angelman.org.
