Advances in basic and clinical research in genetics are changing the understanding and practice of neurology.
At Yale Medicine Neurogenetics, we:
- Evaluate and diagnose adult and pediatric patients with complex neurological disorders in which a genetic connection is considered
- Provide long-term management of patients with a wide range of inherited disorders of the nervous system (including neurodegenerative and neuromuscular disorders, familial epilepsy, genetic forms of stroke, familial neuroimmunological disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders of children, autism spectrum disorders)
- Counsel family members
- Offer potential treatment options and provide information about research protocols for which patients may be eligible
