1 : Neurobiology of Learning and Memory Prof. Anagnostaras Lec 10: Mental Retardation
2 : What is retardation? DSM Criteria IQ of 70 or below (Normal mean = 100, SD = 15, so 2 SD) Deficits or impairments in present adaptive functioning in at least two of the following: Communication Self Care Home Living Social/ Interpersonal Skills Community Resources Self-Direction Functional Academic Skills Work, Leisure, Health, and Safety Onset before the age of 18 **arrested development** Differential Diagnosis: Learning Disorders or Communication Disorders Dementia Pervasive developmental disorders
3 : Etiology of Mental Retardation At least 1.5 million in the US have MR Genetics SES Cultural deprivation Diet Drugs (Alcohol) Parity Mother’s Age Prenatal factors
4 : MR and Mother’s Age 16-20 = 1 in 2,000 21-25 = 1 in 1,500 26-30 = 1 in 1,000 31-35 = 1 in 750 36-44 = 1 in 37 45-up = 1 in 12 • Just because it isn’t heritable doesn’t mean it isn’t genetic!
5 : Severity of Retardation Mild Retardation: 85% of MR, IQ 50-55 to 70 develop social and communication skills in preschool years often not distinguishable from children without retardation until later age only acquire academic skills up to approximately 6th grade level as adults- maintain unskilled jobs may need social and financial assistance Moderate Retardation: 10% of MR, IQ 35-40 to 50-55 acquire communication skills in later childhood years unlikely to progress beyond 2nd grade level difficulties recognizing social conventions and may interfere with pure relationships needs to be supervised
6 : Severe Retardation: 3-4% of MR, IQ 20-25 to 35-40 little or no communicative speech function on an elementary level in both speech and self care physical abnormalities need constant supervision Profound Retardation: 1-2% of MR, IQ below 20-25 neurological condition accounts for MR motor development, self care and communication skills may improve if appropriate instruction is provided but most can only perform simple tasks when heavily supervised Severity of Retardation
7 : Causes Hundreds of causes identified, although one- third of cases unknown • Most involve a disruption of gene, or gene expression (i.e, “genomic”), but may or may not be heritable or familial Most common: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Down’s Syndrome (Trisomy 21) Fragile X Syndrome
8 : Low Heritability of Severe Retardation
9 : Genetic forms: chromosomal abnormalities Chromosomal Abnormalities mostly spontaneous DS Down’s Syndrome (1 in 1,000) Trisomy 21 Most develop Alzheimer’s & lethal WS William’s Syndrome (1 in 25,000) - Chr 7 LimK XXX Triple X Syndrome (1 in 1,000 F) XXY XXY Male Syndrome (1 in 750 M) AS Angelman Syndrome (1 in 25,000) from mother 15q11, UBE3A, GABR3 affected PWS Prader-Willi Syndrome (1 in 15,000) from father same locus as AS, but SNRPN gene affected XYY XYY Syndrome (1 in 1,000 M) XO Turner’s syndrome (1 in 2,500 F) Severe Mild
10 : Genetic forms: single-gene mutations Single gene mutations PKU Phenylketonuria (1 in 10,000) many mutations in PAH gene for phenylalanine hydoxylase *diet* RS Rett Syndrome (1 in 10,000 F, lethal in M) MECP2, methyl-CpG-binding protein-2 FRX Fragile X Syndrome (1 in 1,250 M, 1 in 2500 F) FMR1 expanding triplet repeat LNS Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome (1 in 20,000 M) HPRT1, hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase DMD Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (1 in 3,500 M) huge DMD gene produces dystrophin doesn’t affect mice NF1 Neurofibromatosis (1 in 3,000 births) huge NF1 gene Severe Mild
11 : Distribution of IQ 50 70 85 100 115 130 145 2.14% 13.59% 34.13% 34.13% 13.59% 2.14% 0.13% 0.13% 95.44% 68.26% IQ score Proportion of scores Mean = 100 sd = 15 PKU RS DS WS FRX LNS DMD NF1 XXX, XXY AS, PWS >150 Genius XYY XO Many studies of genetic origins of low IQ, but not high IQ >200 "Super Genius" +4 IGF2 promotor PM
12 : Conclusions Multiple causes of retardation suggest that intelligence is complex >> easy to disrupt genetically or during development With few exceptions most forms of mental retardation involve disruption of genes, but may not be familial or heritable because mutation arises spontaneously Present studies focus on copying mutations in mice and then trying to treat deficits in mice.

Retardation can be mental as well as physical. late development in children. retardation may have m    more
