About this series
The Springer series Advances in Behavior Genetics focuses on the interdisciplinary area combining the behavioral sciences and genetics. The study of behavior genetics has become increasingly important as rapid advances in molecular genetic techniques lead to quicker discovery of genes involved in complex behavior disorders. It has now become a vast common ground for scientists from very diverse fields including psychology, psychiatry, neurology, endocrinology, biochemistry, neuroimaging, as well as genetics. The series Advances in Behavior Genetics seeks to document the changing landscape of the field as it continues to progress from comparatively small studies to consortia-based efforts that target the inherited components of complex diseases and behaviors with thousands of participants. With reviews of up-to-date literature of current topics and issues in behavior genetics the series will direct future research for students and researchers in behavior genetics.
