This book provides a solid foundation to the field of Behavior Genetics, covering a wide range of topics and concepts, presented in an orderly sequence. It is suitable for undergraduate or graduate students from a variety of disciplines, including Psychology, Biology, Chemistry, Anthropology, and Sociology. It covers a range of topics relevant to Behavior Genetics, from an introduction to the field to the discussion of broader principles, all presented in an orderly sequence. It provides a solid foundation for understanding genetics and heredity, and applies these concepts to both normal and abnormal behaviors associated with cognition, mood, and sexual behaviors, as well as health issues. The book concludes with two chapters on the practical applications of Behavior Genetics, including an insight into potential careers, and a discussion on the future of this rapidly expanding field.This text guides readers through an orderly sequence of related topics from the field, from the molecular structure and function of DNA to how DNA controls protein development and the neural processes that underlie both normal and abnormal behaviour. Though focused primarily on human research, animal models are also included.
