...Williams Syndrome (WS) Twenty missing genes can have a devastating effect on the lives of people. This is what is true with people who have Williams Syndrome (WS). A Gloria Lenhoff, for example, can't add 5 plus 4, but would remember more than 1,000 songs. A Michael Williams can't go out the door without getting lost, yet can play almost anything. And a Meghan Finn can't tell left from right, but studies music in college (CBS News, 2004). In other words, these are people born with defects and yet, they have plus factors going for them, musicality for one. It is music that can get them through a very tough life, different from the normal lives of others. The brains of people... Hope with Music in...

...Williams syndrome face-processing debate: the importance of building developmental trajectories" Summary The pastdecade has seen an increasing rise in interest and need for resolving the topic of face processing in Williams syndrome (WS). The early findings about the normally developing face-processing module were questioned by studies proposing that WS patients used a different balance of cognitive processing from controls, even when their behavioural scores were in the normal range. However, some recent studies have proposed that the face processing of WS patients are exactly like normal individuals. In the present paper, an attempt to resolve the ongoing debate...

However, if both parents carry a copy of the gene, then there is a one in four chance that a child will get Usher syndrome. Nine genes have already been identified to cause Usher syndrome, although it is thought that many other genes could be responsible (Ebermann, et al., 2010). These genes are responsible for encoding proteins that are involved in muscle function, cell adhesion, receptor function, synaptic shaping and scaffold formation (Williams, 2008).
