The article presents information on neurogenetics. The main aim in neurogenetics is to characterize and understand the genetic causes behind neurological diseases. The evolution of neurogenetics could be divided in four eras namely the descriptive, the medical technological, the molecular genetics and the personalized medicine era. It is expected to develop better treatments for neurological diseases based on the understanding of the pathophysiology of neurogenetic diseases in the future.
