Summary Psychiatric genetics is an exciting new discipline that explores how our minds and behavior are influenced by our genes. The Handbook of Psychiatric Genetics provides basic principles and statistical approaches to dissecting the genes involved in complex mental disorders. This book presents the latest approaches to studying and understanding the central nervous system and human behavior; addresses the controversial nature of genetic studies and includes a discussion of ethical issues in scientific conduct; highlights the one gene, one disorder (OGOD) and quantitative trait loci (QTL) approaches; and has more than 100 figures and table to assist the reader. This cornerstone reference explores the status of psychiatric genetics and the future of this rapidly evolving discipline
