In this up-to-date survey and critical assessment of transgenic and knockout models in neuropsychiatry and behavior, a panel of leading researchers comprehensively assesses how and whether the genetic abnormalities produced from these models manifest the neuropsychiatric disorders to which they correspond. The authors focus on transgenic and knockout models of neurocognitive dysfunction and neuropsychiatric dysfunction. The discussion of neurobiological problems covers mental retardation, polyglutamate, and speech disorders, as well as disorders that involve cognitive, social, speech, and language dysfunction. The neuropsychiatric dysfunctions examined include psychosis and schizophrenia, anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:". Das vorliegende Buch versucht, den aktuellen Stand einer faszinierenden Entwicklung festzuhalten, und beleuchtet durch Aufsätze von international anerkannten Autoren verschiedene Aspekte des Einsatzes von transgenen Tiermodellen bei neuropsychiatrischen Krankheitsbildern. Der erste einführende Teil des Buches gibt einen Überblick über Geschichte und die Untersuchung von Tiermodellen bei neuropsychiatrischen Fragestellungen. . Insgesamt stellt dieses Buch eine überaus interessante und anregende Lektüre . und könnte dabei wichtige Anregungen zur translationalen Umsetzung von Forschungsinhalten . vermitteln."(H. H. Jung, in: Schweizer Archiv für Neurologie und Psychiatrie, 2007, Vol. 158, Issue 2, S. 91)
