The Val158Met catechol-O-methyl transferase functional polymorphism has been repeatedly associated to differences in performing the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test in both, patients with schizophrenia and healthy individuals. However, this association has not been consistently replicated for the Trail Making Test part-B (TMT-B). In a sample of 89 patients suffering from a functional psychotic disorder and their healthy siblings we aim (i) to explore if there is any difference completing the TMT-B… CONTINUE READING
