Genes interact with the environment, experience, and biology of the brain to shape an animal's behavior. This latest volume inAdvances in Genetics,organized according to the most widely used model organisms, describes the latest genetic discoveries in relation to neural circuit development and activity.

  • Explores the latest topics in neural circuits and behavior research in zebrafish, drosophila, C.elegans, and mouse models
  • Includes methods for testing with ethical, legal, and social implications
  • Critically analyzes future prospects
