Title of Talk:   Anxiety and brain morphology are related to poorer visuospatial working memory in a group of children and adolescents at ultra-high risk for developing schizophrenia.

Description of Talk:
Children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome face complex and serious medical, behavioral, and socioemotional challenges including an elevated risk of schizophrenia.
