Pediatric Neurotransmitter Disease

"Pediatric Neurotransmitter Disease" (PND) is an umbrella term for genetic disorders that affect the synthesis, metabolism and catabolism of neurotransmitters in children.


Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that are released during a nerve impulse to either excite or inhibit nerve function.


PND's are genetic diseases. Each specific PND has its own variation (an unusual form) mutation (alteration) of a gene.

Genetic testing

Diagnosis of PND's can be made in different ways. For some dopamine and serotonin related diseases diagnosis can be confirmed by different tests.
