The goal of neurogenetics is an understanding of the genetic basis of brain structure and function. Neurogenetics deals with multiple areas of investigation, including the genetic basis of neural induction, patterning, cell fate specification, neuron maturation, axonal and dendritic organization, synapse function, and learning and behavior. This appendix provides links to databases and other Web sites used by neurobiologists for recovery of information about genes involved in neural development and neuron function. Special care has been taken to curate sites involving model organisms, since neurogenetics relies heavily on comparative genomics to establish gene function.
