A clear and comprehensive account of how genetic abnormalities, neurobiology, and neuropsychology work together to manifest cognitive-behavioral dysfunction. The authors review the current status of research in autosomal disorders that produce cognitive-behavioral dysfunction and syndromal and nonsyndromal disorders that produce mental retardation. Comprehensive and up-to-date, Genetics and Genomics of Neurobehavioral Disorders integrates the molecular, genomic, neuropsychological, and neurobehavioral factors that produce learning disabilities and mental retardation into a coherent framework for the understanding and assessment of neurobehavioral disorders.

Editorial Reviews

"this book brings together research from neuroscience, genetics, and psychology in a concise and unique way. This type of synthesis is sorely needed as we struggle to understand the complexities of human brain function and dysfunction. It is a valuable contribution to these fields as is, and it is exciting to speculate what future editions will contain. "-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"...Gene Fisch has edited a remarkable volume...I highly recommend this book for clinicians, researchers, and students interested in neurodevelopmental disorders." - Human Genetics"...a comprehensive and highly accessible review of this enormously interesting body of work...a highly readable and thought-provoking volume." - J. AM. ACAD. CHILD ADOLESC. PSYCHIATRY"...a useful update on behavioral phenotypes for which the neurobiological substrates are beginning to reveal their secrets." - Association for Child Psychology"...a useful update on behavioral phenotypes for which the neurobiological substrates are beginning to reveal their secrets." - Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry
