      by S.V. Faraone, M.T. Tsuang, and D.W. Tsuang, pp., ill., New York, Guildford Press, This book lucidly describes the key methods and issues relating to conducting and evaluating modern neuropsychiatric genetic research and its clinical applications. The book is aimed primarily at clinicians and students (the reference to “researchers” in the title is appropriate to the extent that Author: Jeremy M. Silverman. This resource provides information from numerous levels of analysis including molecular biology and genetics, cellular physiology, neuroanatomy, neuropharmacology, epidemiology, and behavior. In doing so it translates information from the basic laboratory to the clinical laboratory and finally to clinical treatment. The result is an excellent and cutting-edge resource for psychiatric residents.

Although the parlance "disease-causing gene" is common, it is the occurrence of an abnormality in these genes that causes the disease. Charney & Nestler’s Neurobiology of Mental Illness is an authoritative foundation for translating information from the laboratory to clinical treatment, and this edition extends beyond its reference function to acknowledge and examine the controversies and thoughts on the future of psychiatric diagnosis. In this wider context, this book.

The New Genetics of Mental Illness is a collection of papers that discusses the advancement of molecular biology in the context of psychiatry. The book presents papers that are organized thematically. The text first discusses the basics of biology and quantitative models, and then proceeds to.

Mental disorders are no exception and it is likely that most new psychotropic drugs will in future be derived through molecular genetic approaches. This book examines the place of molecular genetics in our understanding of the basic mechanisms of mental disorders and their role in Price: $ "Genetics of Mental Disorders, a primer on psychiatric genetics whose authors have long experience in genetic research and teaching, is a strong candidate for becoming a Molecular genetics of mental disorders book text for those embarking on careers in research, teaching, or clinical practice.

With its admirable blend of fundamental facts and clinical applications, the book will be /5(2). The disorders in Table 4 sort into two categories: (1) mental disorders that are ready for and require a large NIMH Genetics Initiative and (2) mental disorders that would benefit from nonmolecular genetic and/or epidemiological studies and smaller scale molecular approaches to better document their estimated heritability.

In this context, the book Genetics of Mental Disorders appears particularly timely, in that it represents a valuable guide to understanding the main issues implicated in the study and treatment of psychiatric disorders from a genetic by: It begins with a succint overview of the basic neurosciences followed by and evaluation of the tools that are available for the study of mental disorders in humans.
