Organized into four main sections-the future of psychiatric genetics, diagnosis and prevention of psychiatric disorders, neurobiology and psychiatric disorders, and the future of psychiatric education-Psychopathology in the Genome and Neuroscience Era focuses on a broad range of topics, among them, understanding both the influence of genetics on the diagnosis and prevention of psychiatric disorders and the role of neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration in psychopathological processes.Psychopathology in the Genome and Neuroscience Era is a must-read reference work for anyone-practitioners, residents, and students alike-interested in the future of psychiatric genetics, epidemiology, and education.
