This foundational work comprehensively examines the current state of the genetics, genomics and brain circuitry of psychiatric and neurological disorders. It consolidates discoveries of specific genes and genomic regions associated with these conditions, the genetic and anatomic architecture of these syndromes, and addresses how recent advances in genomics are leading to a reappraisal of the biology underlying clinical neuroscience. In doing so, it critically examines the promise and limitations of these discoveries toward treatment, and to the interdisciplinary nature of understanding brain and behavior. Coverage includes new discoveries regarding autism, epilepsy, intellectual disability, dementias, movement disorders, language impairment, disorders of attention, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.Genomics, Circuits, and Pathways in Clinical Neuropsychiatryfocuses on key concepts, challenges, findings, and methods in genetics, genomics, molecular pathways, brain circuitry, and related neurobiology of neurologic and psychiatric disorders.

  • Provides interdisciplinary appeal in psychiatry, neurology, neuroscience, and genetics
  • Identifies key concepts, methods, and findings
  • Includes coverage of multiple disorders from autism to schizophrenia
  • Reviews specific genes associated with disorders
  • Discusses the genetic architecture of these syndromes
  • Explains how recent findings are influencing the understanding of biology
  • Clarifies the promise of these findings for future treatment
