Abstract

This chapter presents information on neurogenetic causes of brain diseases and points to future directions of building CNGM for these diseases. With the advancement of molecular research technologies more and more data and information is available about the genetic basis of neuronal functions and diseases (see Table A.l in Appendix 1). This information can be utilized to create models of brain functions and diseases that include models of gene and protein interactions, i.e. computational neurogenetic models (CNGM) (Kasabov and Benuskova 2004,2005). This research has many open questions, some of them listed below we will attempt to address in this chapter
