Behavior Genetic Approaches in Behavioral Medicine (Language of Science)

by

Behavior Genetic Approaches in Behavioral Medicine (Language of Science) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Leading researchers examine how behavior genetics provides crucial insights into genetic and environmental influences in the development of biobehavioral disorders. These influences are illustrated by using the examples of cardiovascular disease, obesity and eating disorders, alcohol use and abuse, and smoking behavior. Contributors discuss the relevance of molecular genetic approaches and twin and family designs to the complex field of behavior medicine research.

Book News Annotation:

Reports research into genetic influences on behavior that affect health and disease, particularly alcoholism, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and smoking; and how genetic variation can be used to calculate the effect of environmental factors on health. Covers the principles of behavior genetics, addictive behaviors, stress and reactivity, body weight and eating behavior, gender and ethnicity, and the place of genetics in behavioral medicine.
