Classical galactosemia (CG) is an inborn error of galactose metabolism. Many CG-patients suffer from long-term complications including poor cognitive functioning. There are indications of social dysfunction but limited evidence in the literature. Therefore, this study aims to improve our understanding of social competence in CG by investigating social cognition, neurocognition and emotion-regulation.
