Biopsychology: Pearson New International Edition

8e édition

Pinel encourages interactive learning and creative thinking. His clear and engaging presentation makes the material personally and socially relevant to the reader.

Biopsychology is an introduction to the study of the biology of behavior; it focuses on the neural mechanisms of psychological processes. The defining feature of Biopsychology is its unique combination of cutting-edge biopsychological science and student-oriented discourse. Rather than covering topics in the usual textbook fashion, it interweaves the fundamentals of the field with clinical case studies, personal implications, social issues, helpful metaphors, and memorable anecdotes. Biopsychology is a friendly mentor that speaks directly to students, enthusiastically describing recent advances in biopsychological science.

The emphasis of Biopsychology is on broad themes, rather than details. Four especially important themes are highlighted throughout the text by distinctive theme tabs: (1) clinical implications (2) neuroplasticity,(3) the evolutionary perspective (4) thinking creatively.

For undergraduate junior/senior level courses in Behavioral Neuroscience, Physiology of Behavior, Biopsychology, Human Neuropsychology, or Physiological Psychology.
