PROMOCOPY

This text offers a comprehensive introduction to molecular biology, genetics, and neurobiology relevant to psychiatry. Generously illustrated chapters are organized to be read at both an introductory and a more advanced level.

Both beginners and advanced professionals will benefit from this text's discussion of how psychotropic drugs work and how gene-environment interactions may contribute to the pathogenesis of psychiatric disorders. The authors demonstrate how molecular investigations in psychiatry will revolutionize the field by leading to improved diagnostic testing, to new and more effective treatments, and ultimately to the development of preventive measures for mental illness.

TOPTHREEREVIEWS

"This brief but important book fills a gap between clinical psychiatry and the rapidly evolving field of molecular neuroscience."�New England Journal of Medicine
"I enthusiastically recommend this concise text to anyone interested in how molecular biology may contribute to advances in psychiatry in future decades. Undoubtedly, this book will be used extensively by medical students and psychiatry residents who will want to be conversant with the molecular foundations of psychiatry as they prepare to practice in the next millennium."�The Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences
"An outstanding job and makes data accessible to anyone unfamiliar with modern cellular and molecular biology. It is an excellent book."�Choice
