Brave New Brain

Conquering Mental Illness in the Era of the Genome

Nancy C. Andreasen

Brave New Brain is a travel guide to the future. Scientists are presently mapping both the terrain of the brain and the geography of the genome. Psychiatry has joined them on a quest to conquer mental illnesses--those illnesses that strike the most human part of our bodies, our brains and minds. Brave New Brain is designed as a resource book for following this voyage of discovery. It explains the nature of mental illness and genome and brain mapping, using clear simple language, interesting case histories, and extensive illustrations.
