Semantic processing and verbal memory were examined in females with FXTAS. EEG/ERPs of 61 participants (34 FXTAS, Mean age 62.7; 27 controls, Mean age 60.4) were obtained during a category judgment task in which semantically congruous and incongruous words were repeated. ERP analyses revealed a significant reduction of the N400 congruity effect (incongruous?congruous) in the FXTAS group. The N400 congruity effect reduction in females with FXTAS was mainly due to increased N400 amplitude to congruous new words. The decreased N400 congruity effect suggests abnormal semantic expectancy and/or semantic network disorganization. The enhanced N400 amplitude to congruous new words may reflect decreased cognitive flexibility among FXTAS women.
