Delineation of early attentional control difficulties in fragile X syndrome: focus on neurocomputational changes.

Abstract:

As FXS is well characterised at the cellular level, the condition provides a unique opportunity to investigate how a genetic dysfunction can impact on the development of neurocomputational properties relevant to attention.
