Ever the arty Autie

Connective tissue, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and the brain


Beyond Your Expectations Connective tissue in the brain is essential to learning and how we store information. What then of those with connective tissue disorders such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome? Whilst EDS is presently thought to effect 1 in 5000 people in the general population (though other rarer forms like EDSIV 1 in 20,000) would we be more likely then to find EDS related connective tissue disorders in those with learning and developmental disabilities?
