About this item
Genomics, Circuits, and Pathways in Clinical Neuropsychiatry comprehensively examines the existing knowledge surrounding the genetics and genomics of psychiatric disorders, thoroughly consolidating discoveries on specific genes associated with disorders, the genetic architecture of those genes, and how phenotypic heterogeneity and polymorphism explains differences in symptoms.
The book critically examines the promise and limitations of these discoveries toward treatment, and to the interdisciplinary nature of understanding brain and behavior. Coverage includes new discoveries regarding autism, epilepsy, intellectual disability, language impairment, disorders of attention, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.
Users will find a key focus on emerging concepts, challenges, findings, and methods in genetics, genomics, brain circuitry, and related neurobiology of psychiatric disorders, with crossover information that will appeal to researchers in psychiatry, neuroscience, and genetics.
