Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Disease

April 7, 2021
10:10 AM - 4:50 PM

Event Description

The recent past has seen major advances in the understanding of the genetic and genomic architecture of neurodevelopmental disorders. We now have a deeper understanding of how genetic risk for many complex traits including neurodevelopmental disorders is driven by natural selection and distributed across the allelic spectrum. 

In addition to the emerging genetic and molecular advances, there is the increasing realization that neurodevelopmental disorders target specific brain circuits. The interaction between genetic background, brain structure, and brain function is now the scientific background upon which specific neurodevelopmental conditions can be studied and understood.
