In brief: Lots!

Generally, if you have fewer or more genes or chromosomes than you're supposed to have, intelligence may well be affected.
Other genetic/metabolic diseases can damage the brain because of the toxic build up of by products from dysfunctional metabolism which the body may have difficulty disposing of.
