Connections 20060. The Genetics of the Autism Spectrum

The autistic spectrum of behaviors is becoming increasingly connected to genetics as more neurological and developmental pathways are being deciphered. PSY 324 provides a rich set of examples, as taught by Professor Grace Baron, an authority on autism and practitioner in the field. BIO 211 supplements by providing the background needed to appreciate the genetics of childhood behavior disorders in general and autism in particular.
