Neuroepigenetics eBook: A Guide to Getting Started with Epigenetics in Neuroscience Research
There is increasing evidence that many neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative, and psychiatric disorders are caused at least in part by aberrant epigenetic modifications.
As a result, neuroscience researchers are now beginning to investigate the epigenetic mechanisms responsible for regulation of gene expression in neuronal cells and how this impacts normal brain function.
Epigenetics is complicated. But the transition into epigenetics research does not have to be intimidating because there are an increasing number of resources and tools available to help scientists learn what experiments to do to obtain their desired results. This free eBook will help guide you towards the best approaches to take to answer your specific research questions.
Topics covered include:
- The various epigenetic modifications found in neurons
- The available tools to use in the “epigenetics tool kit”
- The role of epigenetic modulation in brain disorders
- 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) and the brain
