Social and emotional wellbeing in girls and women with and without fragile X premutation

The aim of this study is to understand social preferences and mental health in girls and women with fragile X premutation, aged 16-50 years, compared to girls and women without the fragile X premutation.

This study involves an in-person session and a remote session, including clinical interviews, eye-tracking tasks, self-report questionnaires, and a saliva sample. Girls and women aged between 16-50 with and without the fragile X premutation visited us at the University of Surrey or we visited them at home.


We have now finished recruiting for this study and would like to thank everyone who took part in this research. We look forward to sharing our findings with you soon.
