9780470871003: Biological Psychology: An Illustrated Survival Guide

“This fantastic introduction to Biological Psychology brings the subject to life in a way that no traditional textbook can. I will certainly be recommending it.”   Brian Wink, Southampton Solent University

"My first reaction was that it was both imaginative and courageous. Having read it, I would add that it also makes a significant contribution to the available texts on biological psychology. This approach is just what students are looking for.”   Graham Mitchell, University of Northampton

Taking a refreshingly innovative approach to the subject, Biological Psychology: An Illustrated Survival Guide uses cartoons as an effective teaching medium. Each chapter is organised into a mini lecture, and offers an accessible introduction to key topics including:

  • The brain and nervous system
  • Vision and audition
  • The mechanical and chemical senses
  • Emotions and sexual behaviour
  • Memory and learning

Intended to complement traditional textbooks in the area, Biological Psychology: An Illustrated Survival Guide provides undergraduate and ‘A’ level students with an alternative introduction to biological psychology and an invaluable study aid.

“This fantastic introduction to Biological Psychology brings the subject to life in a way that no traditional textbook can. It is full of great illustrations and wonderful analogies that will help many students who find getting to grips with the biological bases of behaviour challenging. I will certainly be recommending it to students on my courses”.

DR. BRIAN WINK, SOUTHHAMPTON SOLENT UNIVERSITY

Having read it, I would add that it also makes a significant contribution to the available texts on biological psychology. This very novel approach is just what students are looking for – it is accessible and inviting, but also delivers detail with understanding”.

About the Author:

Paul Aleixo

Paul has worked as a lecturer in several British universities since completing his Doctoral degree in psychology in the early 1990s. Currently a Senior Lecturer in psychology, he has varied research interests including the application of psychological principles to educational practice. He has taught a number of psychology courses including Biological Psychology for many years. A lifelong interest in comics has led him to explore their use in education. This book is one of these explorations.

Murray Baillon

Murray first met Paul when they were both fresh-faced first year students at University. It was here that they took their first steps as creative partners, writing and performing sketches for student revues. They also both read a lot of comics, which created a shared frame of reference that proved invaluable for this book. After graduating with a B.Sc. in Psychology, Murray then moved into teaching, completing a PGCE at the University of Greenwich. It was while teaching in Singapore that Murray took on his first professional work as an illustrator. He continued to fit illustration work around teaching until recently, when he decided to fit teaching in around illustrating. His work includes fabric print design; logos; cartoons and comic strips for various publications; and children's book illustrations. He has really enjoyed the challenges that Paul set him in this book, as he has never tried to draw things like angry neurons before.
