Summary (Publisher-supplied data) Every day there is new information about how genes and environment influence brain development and behavior. Neurobehavioral genetics is evolving rapidly, and in this second edition there are new, important methods presented that were not developed or generally used before. The increase of applications of microarrays, for instance, has enabled researchers to address previously intractable problems and to uncover novel potential targets for therapies. Chapters are included on the latest informatics instruments, as well, that help lighten the intellectual load if trying to model how genes work singly and together, and how they are influenced by the environment
