Abstract

The advent of molecular biology has changed the way in which neurological illnesses are classified, and the single genes causing a number of disorders have been identified. In addition, techniques such as linkage analysis and DNA sequencing have resulted in greater understanding of multi-gene diseases. This review covers some of the molecular tools and animal models used for genetic analysis and for DNA based diagnosis, and a brief survey of information available on the internet.
