Disease
The cerebral dysfunction in Friesian Stabijhoun is an inherited disease of the brain. A genetic mutation causes a structural change of transporter systems for neurotransmitters. Due to this malfunction, several processes in the central nervous-system are impaired. Clinically affected animals exhibit a large variety of neuronal symptoms such as depressed behaviour, walking circles, obsessive sniffing and running backwards.
