Genetic risk & atypical development: 22q11 Syndrome

-

Studying 22q11 deletion syndrome (Velo-Cardio-Facial syndrome) may help in uncovering complex gene-brain-behaviour relationships. This project is focused on the profile of neurocognitive dysfunctions in childhood. An important aim is to assess the relationship between neurocogntive deficits and increased vulnerability for psychosis in this population. 

This study is a collaboration with the University Medical Centre Utrecht (UMCU).
