Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this paper we review the data on intelligence in fra(X) males reported up to now in the literature, with special attention to its evolution with age. The available data suggest a decline in intellectual functioning in relation to age. These findings, however, should be interpreted with caution because of sampling and other methodological problems related with the fra(X) screening procedures and programs in general.
