About this book

The potential for malfunction of this large number of complex biological systems is great, leading to the many behavioral and cognitive deficits observed in human psychiatric and neurological disorders. Genomics, Proteomics, and the Nervous System discusses research designed to increase our understanding of the nervous system and its structures and activities. This volume of Advances in Neurobiology discusses the utilization of genomic and proteomic technologies, to address facets of neurobiology including development and epigenetic regulation, functions in learning and memory, and changes associated with neurological and psychiatric disorders.

About the authors

James D Clelland, PhD is a Research Scientist at the Nathan Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research, and an Assistant Professor at New York University School of Medicine, in the Department of Psychiatry. His research interests include understanding the biochemical and molecular changes that underlie susceptibility to, and the etiology of, psychiatric illnesses.
