Book Description :

Recent advances in genetic methodology are providing important aetiological and developmental information to the growing literature on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and related conditions. Attention, Genes and ADHD is the first book to review and integrate both behaviour-genetic and molecular-genetic advances in this area. It brings together international researchers to show how modern techniques may be applied to the investigation of ADHD, and reviews current findings in the field of ADHD and related conditions. The book looks at the application of behaviour genetic approaches to twin studies, and reviews diagnostic to ADHD, the relationships between reading, spelling and ADHD, and family and genetic influences on speech and speech and language. Chapters go on to consider the overlaps between ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder and to explore the environmental and genetic influences among these disorders. The neurobiological and genetic relationship between ADHD and Tourette's Disorder is also examined. The book reviews recent advances in molecular genetics - in particular a discussion of Fragile X as a model for a single single gene effects on ADHD, and the application of genetic methods and approaches to the study of candidate genes. Finally, the implications for education and intervention are discussed, and current and future roles of gentic studies of ADHD are explored, as well as implications of the sequencing of the human genome for child psychiatry.

Book Description :

A Guardian Book of the Week Longlisted for the PEN / E. O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award An award-winning physician and scientist makes the game-changing case that genetic females are stronger than males at every stage of life Here are some facts: Women live longer than men. They have stronger immune systems. They're better at fighting cancer and surviving famine, and even see the world in a wider variety of colors. They are simply stronger than men at every stage of life. Why is this? And why are we taught the opposite? To find out, Dr. Sharon Moalem drew on his own medical experiences - treating premature babies in the neonatal intensive care unit; recruiting the elderly for neurogenetic studies; tending to HIV-positive orphans in Thailand - and tried to understand why in every instance men were consistently less likely to thrive. The answer, he discovered, lies in our genetics: two X chromosomes offer a powerful survival advantage. With clear, captivating prose that weaves together eye-opening research, case studies, diverse examples ranging from the behavior of honeybees to American pioneers, as well as experiences from his personal life and his own patients, Moalem explains why genetic females triumph over males when it comes to resiliency, intellect, stamina, immunity and much more. He also calls for a reconsideration of our male-centric, one-size-fits-all view of medical studies and even how we prescribe medications - a view that still sees women through the lens of men. Revolutionary and yet utterly convincing, The Better Half will make you see humanity and the survival of our species anew.
