Description

Developmental Human Behavioral Epigenetics: Principles, Methods, Evidence, and Future Directions, Volume 23, a new volume in the Translational Epigenetics series, offers the first systematic account of theoretical G79 frameworks, methodological approaches, findings, and future directions in the field of human behavioral epigenetics. Featuring contributions from leading scientists and international researchers, this book provides a comprehensive overview of human behavioral epigenetics, with a close examination of evidence gathered to-date from animal models, challenges of human-based research and clinical translation, pathways towards drug discovery, and next steps in research. Areas of focus include prenatal stress exposures, preterm behavioral epigenetics, intergenerational exposures, trauma and neglect, socio-economic conditions, maternal caregiving and attachment, study design, and epigenetics and psychotherapy.

Key Features

  • Enables more effective study design and methods application in behavioral epigenetics research across human and animal models
  • Examines findings in human behavioral epigenetics to-date
  • Features contributions from leading international researchers in behavioral epigenetics

Readership

Human geneticists; human genomicists; translational researchers in genomic medicine, epigenetics, neuroscience, neuropsychiatry, and biological psychiatry; life science researchers; developmental biologists; neurologists, psychiatrists; pharmacologists in industry and academia
