The Autisms: Molecules to Model Systems is designed to introduce the genetic basis for multiple autisms and discuss the gene mutations within the context of their biological function. The text is directed to advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, psychology students and professionals, psychiatrists, neurologists, and neuroscience researchers alike. It is hoped that readers will be engaged in this emerging field and will be motivated to read further and to cultivate their own understanding and constructs for future research into this enigmatic group of disorders known as the autisms.
