Objectif

Monogenic inborn errors have a prevalence of 1:100. Among these, metabolic diseases affecting brain development have a prevalence of 1:1500. These numerous, but rare and often orphan diseases deeply affect the brain development and functions. This course will provide an overview of the main metabolic diseases affecting brain development, from their genetic to their phenotypic (clinical, pathophysiological and biochemical) description. Students will also learn that these rare diseases also provide an excellent opportunity to analyze brain development and functions from an often unrecognized domain in neuroscience: Intermediary metabolism, which regulate all cellular essential pathways.
