Long-term verbal memory deficit and associated hippocampal alterations in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the necessity to develop tailored tools to evaluate cognition outside of the limits of standardized test available for this population.
  2. Describe how the cognitive phenotype of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS) can inform on later psychiatric manifestations or the identification of subgroups of patients.
