Great Video that explains the Rett Reversal in Mice

Kind of sciency, but if you are interested in hearing someone who knows what they are talking about explain the experiment, here it is! This explains the very exciting experiment that was done where Dr. Bird was able to reverse the sypmtoms of Rett Syndrome in mice. MECP2 is the gene linked to Typical Rett. But this science is still exciting for kids with a FOXG1 mutation (Atypical Rett) because the findings indicate that a similar approach could be taken with the FOXG1 gene.
