Isosinglet fermions naturally arise in a variety of extensions of the Standard Model, in particular in models with extra dimensions. In this paper, we study the effect of the addition of a new isosinglet charged lepton to the standard spectrum, with special emphasis on implications for neutrino asymmetries to be measured at future neutrino factories. Lepton flavour violation in neutral current and lepton universality constraints are extensively discussed. We show that new physics effects in

A signal for CP asymmetries in $\nu_{\mu}-\nu_{\tau}$ channel due to new physics could be observed at $1-3 \sigma$ if lepton flavour violating $\tau$ decays are seen in a very close future in B-factories like BELLE experiment.
