Advanced overviews of neurobehavioural characteristics will add immense value to the investigation of animal mutants and provide unique information about the genetics and behavioural understanding of animal models, under both normal and pathological conditions
Cross-species comparisons of neurobehavioural phenotypes will pave the way for an evolutionary understanding of behaviour
Moreover, while biological sciences are progressing towards a holistic approach to investigate the complexity of organisms i.e., systems biology approach , an integrated analysis of behavioural phenotyping is still lacking
The Handbook of Behavioral Genetics and Phenotyping strengthens the cross-talk within disciplines that investigate the fundamental basis of behaviour and genetics
This will be the first volume in which traditionally distant fields including genomics, behaviour, electrophysiology, neuroeconomics, and computational neuroscience, among others, are evaluated together and simultaneously accounted for during discussions of future perspectives.
