Exploring the Frontier of Personalized Medicine: Neurogenetic Testing


Akimana Gloria*

Neurogenetic testing is a rapidly evolving field within the realm of personalized medicine, with profound implications for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of neurological disorders. This article provides an in-depth exploration of neurogenetic testing, encompassing its various types, applications, ethical considerations, and the promising future it holds. Neurogenetic testing offers insights into an individual's genetic predisposition to conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). By identifying specific genetic variations, clinicians can tailor treatment plans, enable early intervention, and facilitate informed decision-making for family planning. However, the ethical and psychological aspects of neurogenetic testing, including privacy concerns, genetic discrimination, and the emotional impact on individuals and families, are substantial and require careful attention.
