Neurogenetics is a field of scientific research that uses recent advances in genome sequencing in order to better understand the cause of brain and nerve disorders. Neurogenetics stands at the center of some of the most exciting translational clinical and basic research in neurology and human genetics. The field of Neurogenetics emerged from advances made in molecular biology, genetics and a desire to understand the link between genes, behavior, the brain, and neurological disorders and diseases. Neurogenetics is also helping to advance the concept of “personalized” clinical care. With a comprehensive understanding of a patient’s genetic profile and medical history, physicians can create highly tailored treatment programs for each patient.
