Molecular Genetic Approaches to Neuropsychiatric Diseases
This text reviews recent advances in our understanding of the molecular foundations of neurological diseases. It discusses current work in the context of classical Mendelian genetics in a manner which aims to be accessible to both students and professionals. The contributors examine molecular techniques used to study genetic disease, as well as animal models and human genome mapping. Separate chapters review schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease, neuromuscular diseases, mental retardation and metabolic diseases.
