2016 Cerebral Cortex  
Previous studies of the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) Val 158 Met genotype and cognition have focused on prefrontally guided executive functions involving dopamine.  ...  Our findings indicate that the effects of the COMT genotype on language ability and cortical language processing may change in a narrow age window of 6-10 years.  ...  We also appreciate the Bennese Cooperation for compiling and scoring the Japanese language test data.

C. H. Williams-Gray, A. Hampshire, T. W. Robbins, A. M. Owen, R. A. Barker
2007 Journal of Neuroscience  
Our previous work suggests that a common functional polymorphism (val(158)met) within the catechol O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene underlies some of this executive heterogeneity.  ...  We scanned 31 patients with early PD who were homozygous for either valine (val) (n = 16) or methionine (met) (n = 15) at the COMT val(158)met polymorphism during performance of an executive task comprising  ...  One highly plausible hypothesis is that this heterogeneity has a genetic basis, and indeed our own previous work has demonstrated that a common polymorphism in the catechol O-methyltransferase gene (COMT  ...
