2. How does cognitive genetics explain WS?

  • The genes coding for language skills are intact, other developmental disorders are impaired on these genes.
  • The adult state of the language system may be mature but not 'intact'. Language is atypical in many ways, WS informs about the low level processes of language

3. How does neuroconstructivism explain the spatial cognitive deficits in WS?

  • WS individuals impaired in spatial cognition as dorsal stream develops unusually bc WS individual does not detect visuo-spatial properties
  • Genes missing in WS also involved in anatomical development of dorsal stream pathways

4. Why is there interest in Williams syndrome as a model for developmental disorders?

  • Because of its well defined genetic pathology
  • Because it disassociates with other disorders
  • Because it has specific cognitive and behavioural deficits
  • Because it has specific behavioural deficits and global cognitive deficits

5. Typically developing children (at 4-5 years) are worse at?

  • Worse at local over global features
  • Worse at global over local features
  • Worse at motion over form processing
  • Worse at form over motion processing
