Program Description:

The programme, drawing from different disciplines, covers the advances that have been made in behavioural genetics during recent years. Specifically, the programme focuses on how genes and environments shape the development of normal and abnormal human behaviours, including cognitive ability, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), anxiety and depression and schizophrenia. 

In addition to disorder characterisation and presentation of both the genetic, social and other environmental risk factors, the programme covers the molecular mechanisms and the specialised analysis methods relevant to interdisciplinary research in this field. By focusing on current research in this area, the programme will enhance the student’s understanding of research methods and place a strong emphasis on enabling students to critically appraise the relevant scientific literature.
