"Epigenetic Regulation in the Nervous System" addresses current
understanding of the roles of epigenetic processes at the
molecular/cellular level, their impact on neural development and
behavior, and the potential roles of these mechanisms in
neurological and psychiatric disorders. This award-winningvolume
spans molecular epigenetics, development, cellular physiology and
biochemistry, synaptic and neural plasticity, and behavioral
models, and is unique in covering epigenetically based disorders of
the central nervous system.
Behavioral epigenetics is the study of how environmental factors
alter behavior, addressing the fundamental mechanisms that shape
development and individual vulnerability/resilience to adverse
behavioral outcomes. By understanding the molecular mechanisms
involved in epigenetic modulation, researchers may be able to
develop targeted therapies for those individuals in whom it
Edited by the most highly regarded leaders in the field, this
book offers a comprehensive review of behavioral epigenetics and a
balanced treatment of the strengths and weaknesses in
experimentation in this area. Covering background material as well
as topics of current interest, it serves both as a cutting-edge
resource and a foundational reference. The book will benefit
neuroscience researchers and graduate students with an interest in
the links between gene regulation and behavior, as will clinicians
dealing with disorders such as addiction, depression, and
