Neurogenetics attributes to the study of the genetic role in the development and functioning of the nervous system. Many of the fundamental processes underlying neurological disease remain elusive and/or poorly understood. Genetics and proteomics (the study of proteins produced by genes) can increase our understanding of predisposition to diseases so we can develop the next wave of therapies to treat neurological disease. Mapping the gene of Huntington disease, unveiling the cause for hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsy(HNPP) using Neurogenetics is marked as landmark discoveries in the field of neurobiology.
