We investigate the causes, treatments, natural history and phenotypic spectrum of inherited neurologic disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease. Our studies range from describing novel inherited neurologic syndromes (such as Spastic Ataxia/Mental Retardation syndrome); to family studies including genetic mapping (e.g., identifying loci for hereditary spastic paraplegia, paroxysmal dystonic choreoathetosis and X-linked mental retardation-epilepsy); discovering genes for neurologic diseases (e.g., SPG3A/atlastin and SPG6/NIPA1 gene mutations cause HSP; MR1 gene mutations case PDC); and the creation and analysis of laboratory animals of neurologic disease.
