We aimed to investigate UFD1L polymorphisms in schizophrenia and in relation to cognition. A total of 299 cases and 363 controls were genotyped, and 130 patients completed nine neuropsychological tests. We found that rs5992403 AA-genotype carriers showed lower scores on the set-shifting task. Therefore, UFD1L may participate in the core cognitive deficits observed in schizophrenia.
