Neuroscientists are now establishing meaningful genotype-phenotype relationships for complex neurobehavioral and neuropsychiatric disorders and even creating animal models for these dysfunctions. These developments have made it imperative to know when such transgenic and knockout models are valid for the human disorders they represent. In Transgenic and Knockout Models of Neuropsychiatric Disorders, a panel of leading researchers comprehensively assesses how and whether the genetic abnormalities produced from these models manifest the neuropsychiatric disorders to which they correspond.
