📙 The New Genetics of Mental Illness by Peter McGuffin and Robin Murray (Eds.) — free epub


Expanding on a theme of a conference organized by the Mental Health Foundation, this volume is a synthesis of the recent and rapid developments in molecular biology and genetics which impinge upon clinical practice in mental illness. The implications of new discoveries in these fields for a whole range of intractable conditions are immense. Schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, manic-depressive illness, Huntington's chorea, autism and certain anxiety states may all prove to be preventable and treatable as a result of multi-disciplinary co-operation in basic and clinical science. The contributions to the book come from North America, Europe and the UK and represent some of the key work currently being undertaken. The text will be of benefit to clinical and research psychiatrists, and to those with interests in molecular genetics, biochemistry and neuropharmacology
