Neurology and Neurorehabilitation


Neurogenetics presents research that contributes to better understanding of the genetic basis of normal and abnormal function of the nervous system. The journal publishes findings in humans and other organisms that help explain neurological disease mechanisms, and papers from many fields such as biophysics, cell biology, human genetics, neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, neurology, neuropathology, neurosurgery and psychiatry. Neurogenetics studies the role of genetics in the development and function of the nervous system. It considers neural characteristics as phenotypes, and is mainly based on the observation that the nervous systems of individuals, even of those belonging to the same species, may not be identical. Genetics and neurology are studied together in a branch of science called neurogenetics, which concerns the development and function of the nervous system as well as the role played by genes in its development. In genetics, the term “phenotype” refers to the physical attributes or characteristics of an organism and the term “genotype” refers to an organism’s genetic makeup. In terms of the nervous system, “phenotype” may refer to the differences in neural characteristics between individuals of the same species, while “genotype” refers to the genetic make-up that determines the different traits expressed by individual organisms. Citations are important for a journal to get impact factor. Impact factor is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in the journal. The impact of the journal is influenced by impact factor, the journals with high impact factor are considered more important than those with lower ones. This information can be published in our peer reviewed journal with impact factors and are calculated using citations not only from research articles but also review articles (which tend to receive more citations), editorials, letters, meeting abstracts, short communications, and case reports.
