Fourth Edition
by Roger N. Rosenberg

The Molecular and Genetic Basis of Neurologic and Psychiatric Disease is the most comprehensive and up-to-date review of the molecular and genetic basis of neurologic and psychiatric diseases.

Features

  • Experts provide a fresh, new assessment of recent molecular, genetic, and genomic advances
  • Offers new insights into disease pathogenesis
  • Describes the newest available therapies
  • Explores promising areas of therapeutic development
  • A Neurologic Gene Map describes the chromosome locus of all the genetic diseases and their gene product where known

The Molecular and Genetic Basis of Neurologic and Psychiatric Disease includes a companion website that features the fully searchable text online so the reader will have a fast, flexible multimedia library at their service.
