22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome is associated with cognitive, behavioural, and psychiatric problems and is known to affect brain structure. Recently, 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome has been proposed as a disease model for a genetic subtype of schizophrenia. In this paper we discuss the currently available literature on neurocognitive functioning and brain anatomy in patients with 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome, and how this contributes to our understanding of the neurobiology of schizophrenia. Research on… Expand
Cingulate gyral reductions are related to low executive functioning and psychotic symptoms in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome
TLDR
The CG structural abnormalities observed in 22q 11DS are consistent with previous reports in schizophrenic patients and are associated with pre-morbid cognitive impairments. Expand
Schizophrenic‐like neurocognitive deficits in children and adolescents with 22q11 deletion syndrome
TLDR
The findings suggest that the same pattern of neuropsychological impairment seen in patients with schizophrenia is present in non‐psychotic children identified as at‐risk for the development of schizophrenia based on a known genetic risk marker. Expand
A review of neurocognitive and behavioral profiles associated with 22q11 deletion syndrome: Implications for clinical evaluation and treatment
TLDR
Future research should focus on understanding deletion-related gene-environment interactions and their effects on developmental and behavioral outcomes, identifying neurodegenerative processes in 22q11DS, and developing preventive models of behavioral and psychopharmacologic treatment. Expand
Abnormal development of early auditory processing in 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome
TLDR
Different developmental trajectories of early auditory sensory processing in 22q11.2 DS and functional changes that emerge during the critical period of increased risk for schizophrenia spectrum disorders are suggested. Expand
Update on Clinical Features and Brain Abnormalities in Neurogenetics Syndromes
Neuroimaging methods represent a critical tool in efforts to join the study of the neurobiology of genes with the neurobiology of behaviour, and to understand the neurodevelopmental pathways thatExpand
The Role of COMT in Schizophrenic-Like Cognitive Impairment and Social Functioning in Children with 22q11 Deletion Syndrome
Schizophrenia is a severe psychiatric disorder that is hypothesized to represent the most extreme manifestation of a continuum of impairment referred to as schizotypy. As such, many of the cognitive,Expand
Myoclonic epilepsy, parkinsonism, schizophrenia and left-handedness as common neuropsychiatric features in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome
TLDR
The study suggests a possible relationship between the analysed clinical variables: an inverse correlation between low IQ/psychosis/epilepsy and major cardiac diseases; a direct association between psychosis and both mental delay and epilepsy; and an inverse correlations between parkinsonism and epilepsy. Expand
The developmental cognitive trajectory of the 22q11.2 deletion
Background: The 22q11.2 deletion (22qDS) is a microdeletion syndrome which commonly leads to an uneven profile of Learning difficulties (LD), with superior verbal compared to nonverbal intellectualExpand
Genetic risk for schizophrenia and developmental delay is associated with shape and microstructure of midline white matter structures
TLDR
The results are consistent with the notion that a significant alteration in developmental trajectories of mid-line white-matter structures constitutes a common neurodevelopmental aberration contributing to risk for schizophrenia and intellectual disability. Expand
Genetic risk for schizophrenia and developmental delay is associated with shape and microstructure of midline white-matter structures
TLDR
A novel design based on CNV penetrance for schizophrenia (Sz) and developmental delay (DD) that allows us to identify structural sequelae that are most relevant to neuropsychiatric disorders to support the notion that a significant alteration in developmental trajectories of midline white-matter structures constitutes a common neurodevelopmental aberration contributing to risk for schizophrenia and intellectual disability.

Structural brain abnormalities in patients with schizophrenia and 22q11 deletion syndrome
TLDR
Findings from this 22q11 Deletion Syndrome and schizophrenia study are similar to those reported in other patients with schizophrenia, but only partially consistent with those report in nonpsychotic children with 22q 11 Deletions. Expand
Qualitative MRI findings in adults with 22q11 deletion syndrome and schizophrenia
TLDR
BF and skull base abnormalities, especially in association with neurodevelopmental midline abnormalities, may be distinguishing MRI features for a genetic subtype of schizophrenia involving a deletion on chromosome 22. Expand
Structural brain abnormalities associated with deletion at chromosome 22q11
TLDR
Deletion at chromosome 22q11 is associated with brain abnormalities that are most likely neurodevelopmental and may partially explain the high prevalence of learning disability and psychiatric disorder in VCFS. Expand
Increased basal ganglia volumes in velo-cardio-facial syndrome (deletion 22q11.2)
TLDR
Alterations in the basal ganglia circuitry have been implicated in learning, cognitive, and behavioral problems in children and therefore could be involved in the expression of the neurobehavioral phenotype expressed by subjects with 22qDS. Expand
Brain anatomy in adults with velocardiofacial syndrome with and without schizophrenia: preliminary results of a structural magnetic resonance imaging study.
TLDR
Within velocardiofacial syndrome, schizophrenia is associated with generalized differences in brain anatomy, but white matter may be particularly implicated, while studies with larger samples are needed to replicate the findings. Expand
Velocardiofacial syndrome: are structural changes in the temporal and mesial temporal regions related to schizophrenia?
TLDR
Abnormal temporal lobe and hippocampal development in velocardiofacial syndrome is potentially concordant with MRI findings in the schizophrenia literature and may represent a shared substrate for the effects of the 22q11.2 deletion and for the complex etiological pathways that lead to schizophrenia. Expand
A follow-up magnetic resonance imaging study of schizophrenia. Relationship of neuroanatomical changes to clinical and neurobehavioral measures.
TLDR
The existence of neuroanatomical and neurobehavioral abnormalities in patients with first-episode schizophrenia indicates that the brain dysfunction occurred before clinical presentation, however, there is also evidence of progression, in which anatomical changes may affect some clinical and neuro behavioral features of the illness in some patients. Expand
Cognitive and behavior profile of preschool children with chromosome 22q11.2 deletion.
TLDR
The findings demonstrate that there is a pattern of significant speech disorders within this population of children with a 22q11.2 deletion, and early intervention services are strongly recommended beginning in infancy to address the delays in gross motor skills, speech and language, and global developmental delays.

Midline brain anomalies and schizophrenia in people with CATCH 22 syndrome.

  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The British journal of psychiatry : the journal of mental science
  • 1998
TLDR
22q11-dependent abnormalities in the midline structures of the brain may cause dysfunction in the limbic system and interfere with the interhemispheric information exchange thus predisposing people with CATCH 22 syndrome to psychotic disorders. Expand
Cognitive deficits associated with schizophrenia in velo-cardio-facial syndrome
TLDR
TheVCFS group with schizophrenia compared to the VCFS group without schizophrenia performed significantly worse on tests of spatial working memory and strategy formation and the similarities sub-test of the Weschler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS). Expand
