    Summary: the workshop will consider rare neurologic diseases as a model to discuss how an identified molecular or biochemical alteration will reflect on the dysfunction of the nerve system and in consequence identify a specific role in normal CNS function. The interaction between clinical neurologists, geneticists and neuro-pediatricians will also give the opportunity to discuss about the clinical and genetic heterogeneity, the higher vulnerability of several CNS area to a dysmetabolic changes, the possibility of symptoms in carriers, and the new findings suggested by the used of new genetic technologies, enlarging the phenotypic presentation.
