Expressing what's on your mind: DNA arrays and the brain

Nat Rev Neurosci. 2001 Jan;2(1):63-8. doi: 10.1038/35049070.


Questions about brain function and disease are being addressed with parallel genomic approaches. High-density DNA arrays make it possible to monitor the expression levels of thousands of genes at a time, and are being used to address old questions in new ways and to generate new hypotheses about the workings of the brain.
