Summary
"Genetics promises to provide one of the most powerful approaches to understanding the functional pathology of the human brain. This book presents a critical review of the evidence for a genetic contribution to common psychiatric conditions and the rarer single-gene disorders that may have psychiatric presentations." "This will be essential reading for psychiatrists and geneticists and will be of interest to neurologists, psychologists, and neuroscientists."--BOOK JACKET
