This official journal of the American Academy of Neurology provides neurologists with outstanding original contributions that elucidate the role of genetic and epigenetic variation in diseases and biological traits of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
This online open access journal publishes peer-reviewed reports in the field of neurogenetics. Original articles cover all areas of neurogenetics, including rare and common genetic variation, genotype-phenotype correlations, outlier phenotypes as a result of mutations in known disease-genes, and genetic variations with a putative link to diseases. Also included are studies reporting on genetic disease risk and pharmacogenomics.
In addition, Neurology: Genetics publishes results of gene-based clinical trials (viral, ASO, etc.). Genetically engineered model systems are not a primary focus of Neurology: Genetics, but studies using model systems for treatment trials are welcome, including well-powered studies reporting negative results.
