Developmental Human Behavioral Epigenetics: Principles, Methods,  Evidence, and Future Directions, Volume 23, a new volume in the  Translational Epigenetics series, offers the first systematic account of  theoretical G79 frameworks, methodological approaches, findings, and  future directions in the field of human behavioral epigenetics.  Featuring contributions from leading scientists and international  researchers, this book provides a comprehensive overview of human  behavioral epigenetics, with a close examination of evidence gathered  to-date from animal models, challenges of human-based research and  clinical translation, pathways towards drug discovery, and next steps in  research.

Areas of focus include prenatal stress exposures,  preterm behavioral epigenetics, intergenerational exposures, trauma and  neglect, socio-economic conditions, maternal caregiving and attachment,  study design, and epigenetics and psychotherapy.
