Genetics promises to provide one of the most powerful approaches to understanding the functional pathology of the human brain. This book starts with a brief introduction to the relevant molecular and cellular biology and then moves on to cover the evidence for a genetic contribution to normal and abnormal development and to abnormal behaviour in adult life. The final section covers counselling, ethics and takes a look to the future.
