Donald W. Pfaff. Genetic influences on neural and behavioral functions
The concept underlying this book is the contributions of new genomic information to review some of understanding neural and behavioral functions. In some cases, these are already recognized as having strong hereditary components, while in others, the contributions of specific gene products may soon be discovered. Utilizing the flood of new information derived from the Human Genome Project and corresponding efforts to elucidate the mouse genome." Genetic Influences on Neural and Behavioral Functions" provides a scholarly catalog, organized logically, of relations between the expression of specific genes, nerve cell biology and behavior, normal and abnormal, in animals AND humans. Sample topics include genes in relation to schizophrenia, panic disorder, epilepsy, alcoholism, sleep, eating disorders, and more.
