Noyau caudé et traitement temporel dans le syndrome vélocardiofacial (22q11)

Published in L'encéphale. 2011, vol. 37 Suppl 1, p. S42-S49
Abstract Velocardiofacial syndrome (VCFS) is a neurogenetic disorder caused by a microdeletion on chromosome 22q11. Among other cognitive impairments and learning difficulties, affected individuals show difficulties in estimating time intervals (Debbané et al., 2005). Interestingly, neuroimaging studies have found an increased volume of the basal ganglia of people with VCFS (Eliez et al., 2002; Kates et al., 2004; Campbell et al., 2006). Given that the caudate nucleus represents a central component of the cerebral network underlying temporal perception skills, the present report proposes to examine potential relationships between cerebral alteration to the caudate nucleus and time estimation in individuals with VCFS.
