The prefrontal cortex has been implicated in the mediation of executive processes that facilitate learning and memory. The authors hypothesized that children with prefrontal dysfunction related to phenylketonuria (PKU) would experience deficits in learning and memory because of impaired strategy use. They evaluated 23 children with PKU and 23 controls by using the California Verbal Learning Test-Children's Version (CVLT-C).
