Understanding Autism
From Basic Neuroscience to Treatment
edited by Steven O. Moldin

Understanding Autism presents the state-of-the-art research on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of autism.

Features:

  • Covers genetic and genomic technologies currently used to dissect the molecular basis of autism
  • Provides an exhaustive review of cytogenetic, linkage, association, candidate gene, and genetic mapping studies
  • Describes new approaches to the analysis of gene expression and the extension of current studies to include endophenotypes in families of autistic probands
  • Examines the potential role of epigenetic mechanisms in the etiology of autism through the regulation of gene expression by mechanisms that do not alter gene sequences
  • Includes current clinical findings that focus on neuroanatomy and neurochemistry, functional neuroimaging, structural neuroimaging, and neurophysiology and neuropsychology
  • Includes a theoretical and methodological outline of how to identify the public health costs of autism
