Biological Psychology, Seventh Edition is a comprehensive survey of the biological bases of behaviour designed for undergraduates enrolled in biological psychology, physiological psychology, or behavioural neuroscience courses. It offers a broad perspective, encompassing lucid descriptions of behaviour, evolutionary history, development, proximate mechanisms, and applications. What's New in This Edition: * A special feature called 'The Cutting Edge' highlights important discoveries, relating the latest findings while illustrating the logic and methodology of experimentation and hypothesis testing. * Each chapter now ends with a newly created 'Visual Summary,' a poster-like layout that organizes the material graphically and directs students to the figures that reinforce each point. * As always, the book has an outstanding full-colour art program, including hundreds of original illustrations that make it easy to understand structures, mechanisms, and processes in the brain. For the Seventh Edition, all of the figures have been revised to achieve a contemporary graphic look. * Over 400 new citations keep the text current and an excellent resource. Thorough and reader-friendly, Biological Psychology, Seventh Edition reveals the fascinating interactions of brain and behaviour. The book is supplemented by two online study resources: The continuously updated Biological Psychology NewsLink site (biopsychology.com/news) provides links to thousands of news stories in the field, while the Companion Website (biopsychology.com) offers a wide range of study and review resources to help students master the material presented in the textbook, as well as coverage of additional topics. The resources include detailed Chapter Summaries/Outlines, Self-Study Questions, Animations & Videos, Activities, Online Quizzes, Flashcards & Key Terms activities, 'A Step Further' sections and a Glossary.
