Determining the biological bases for behavior, and the extent to which we can observe and explain their neural underpinnings, requires a bold, broadly defined research methodology. The interdisciplinary entries in this handbook are organized around the principle of qmolecular psychology, q which unites cutting-edge research from such wide-ranging disciplines as clinical neuroscience and genetics, psychology, behavioral neuroscience, and neuroethology. For the first time in a single volume, leaders in diverse research areas use molecular approaches to investigate social behavior, psychopathology, emotion, cognition and stress in healthy volunteers, patient populations, and an array of non-human species including rodents, insects, fish, and non-human primates. Chapters draw on molecular methods covering candidate genes, genome-wide association studies, copy number variations, gene expression studies, and epigenetics while addressing the ethical, legal, and social issues to emerge from this new and exciting research approach.A nutritional insult during the early period of life will cause irreversible morphological, neurophysiological, and functional damage that adversely influence brain development. Indeed, clinical evidence indicates that ... and long- chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. Obviously, the severity, timing, and duration of the nutritional insult will further determine the effects on emotional and cognitive development.
