Abstract

Copy number variants are small chromosomal deletions and duplications. When they alter the dose of genes critical for normal brain development and adult brain functioning they may cause severe disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. Numerous such loci have recently been identified. They are offering amazing leads for neuropsychiatric research.
