As noted by Dr. Pavlidis in TheScientist, concerns associated with the Meyer-Lindenberg et al. paper in regards to data processing have properly led to the paper being retracted. We want to avoid any inappropriate over-generalization of the issues that led to the retraction of this paper. It is irrelevant whether the Gene Ontology annotations used in the analysis were old, as the data problem occurred upstream of any GO enrichment testing.
