Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(2), 201–202. Reviews the book, Techniques for the Genetic Analysis of Brain and Behavior: Focus on the Mouse edited by D. Goldowitz, Douglas L. Wahlsten, and Richard E. Wimer (1992). The collection of chapters in this book deals with the single and multiple genes influencing brain structure and function on the road to behavior. This book is timely given the explosion of interest in using behavioral genetic and molecular genetic techniques as powerful means for identifying the underlying mechanisms of behavior. The goal of this book was to provide a neurobehavioral context for genetic investigations. This book provides enjoyable and informative reading material. The final three chapters on genetic investigations in species other than mice provide an informative respite for those readers accustomed to reading only the mammalian literature.
