I am a student involved in an Educational program in Taiwan at this moment, and I just touched the part about mental retardation. My teacher told us about some factors which may affect one's brain's development. In those factors, I saw one called "hypoconnection syndrome" which supposed to be a factor that may cause mental retardation to a child after he/she was born. However, neither me nor my teahcer seems to know what does the term "hypoconnection syndrome" mean or what causes it. It appears that my teacher found that term from some reports issued from AAMR. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any information on that term from AAMR's website. While I was searching around through websites, I saw Madsci. Thus, I wonder whether someone can help me with this question "What is hypoconnection syndrome?" (which I have been trying to find out the answer for weeks, and still have no luck!) or not?? Thank you so much!!
