Neurodevelopmental disorders cover a wide range of diseases and impairments that include developmental and intellectual disabilities, some forms of epilepsy, autism spectrum disorders and neurophysiatric disease. The Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Disorders takes an innovative approach to the many recent advances in our understanding of the genetic architecture of these disorders. The book explores both basic discoveries and the translation of new findings into the clinical setting. The Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Disorders opens with six chapters that look at broad conceptual issues that are relevant to understanding neurodevelopmental disorders. From there, chapters present our current understanding of disorders grouped by the impacted neurodevelopmental process. The following section looks at the elucidation of pathogenic mechanisms following genetic discoveries. The book then closes with two chapters that consider the clinical implications of the recent advances in the field. A timely synthesis of the field, The Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Disorders, promises to be an essential resource for neuroscientists, neurologists, and neuropsychiatric researchers, and advanced students.Kevin J.
