Genes, Brain and Behavior

Genes, Brain and Behavior

by Paul R. McHugh, Victor A. McKusick

Editorial Reviews

Sixteen contributions highlight the applications of contemporary concepts and techniques in medical genetics to the study, diagnosis, and control of neurologic and psychiatric disorders. They examine how techniques such as linkage studies, mapping of human genes on chromosomes, and complete nucleotide sequencing of the human genome provide insights into the pathogenesis of schizophrenia, manic- depressive illness, Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, Down syndrome and mental retardation. New findings on the genetics of obesity and alcoholism are discussed, and a detailed report on the discovery of a genetic abnormality in muscular dystrophy is included. Annotation c.
