The Neurobiological Basis of Suicide
by Yogesh Dwivedi
Publisher: CRC Press 2012
Number of pages: 482
With recent studies using genetic, epigenetic, and other molecular and neurochemical approaches, a new era has begun in understanding the pathophysiology of suicide. Emerging evidence suggests that neurobiological factors are not only critical in providing potential risk factors but also provide a promising approach to develop more effective treatment and prevention strategies.
