Abstract

Neurofibromatosis (NF) is associated with a broad range of relatively nonspecific cognitive impairments, such as, low IQ, learning disabilities, and behavioural changes. While in the past, studies demonstrated the cognitive phenotype of NF resembles that of nonverbal learning disabilities, in contrast, recent research has found that the impairments are broader and do not corelate with the nonverbal disabilities as such [1]. There is some evidence that neuropsychological impairment may be correlated but this theory has not been consistently supported.
