Psychiatric genetics

· Psychiatric genetics is a relatively recent subfield of Behavioural Genetics which studies the role of genetics in various psychological impairments such as alcoholism, esquizofrenia, bipolar disorder and neurodevelopmental disorders such as those of the autistic spectrum. The basic principal behind behavioural genetics is genetic polymorphism, a gene's ability to mutate and ultimately effect behaviour. Psychiatric genetics is hailed as having promising results in medical research in studying the susceptibility of conditions within family and the likeliness of inheriting such conditions.
