Handbook of Psychiatric Genetics

Editat de Kenneth Blum, John G. Cull, Ernest P. Noble
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Hardback – October 1996
Psychiatric genetics is an exciting new discipline that explores how our minds and behavior are influenced by our genes. Increased interest in this area of medical genetics has been sparked by advances in molecular genetic techniques, the genome project, the neurosciences, the role of genes in somatic diseases, and the linking of specific genes with complex mental disorders. This Handbook is the definitive resource on this complex, and sometimes controversial, new field.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Psychiatric genetics is an exciting new discipline that explores how our minds and behavior are influenced by our genes. The Handbook of Psychiatric Genetics provides basic principles and statistical approaches to dissecting the genes involved in complex mental disorders. This book presents the latest approaches to studying and understanding the central nervous system and human behavior; addresses the controversial nature of genetic studies and includes a discussion of ethical issues in scientific conduct; highlights the one gene, one disorder (OGOD) and quantitative trait loci (QTL) approaches; and has more than 100 figures and table to assist the reader. This cornerstone reference explores the status of psychiatric genetics and the future of this rapidly evolving discipline.
