9780878939275: Biological Psychology: An Introduction to Behavioral, Cognitive, and Clinical Neuroscience, Seventh Edition

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.

He has been widely interviewed about his research by periodicals including the San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and Newsweek, as well as broadcast programs such as All Things Considered, Good Morning America, and Sixty Minutes. He has active grant support from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the National Science Foundation. Dr. Breedlove is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Association for Psychological Science. Neil V. Watson is Professor of Neuroscience in the Department of Psychology, Simon Fraser University , Vancouver, Canada. He teaches biological psychology to hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students each year. Neil and the members of his lab study sex-related aspects of the structure and function of the nervous system, with ongoing grant support from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. His work on topics ranging from the effects of steroids on cell survival, to the neural control of reproductive behavior, to human cognitive sex differences has appeared in a variety of journals, including the Journal of Neuroscience, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, and Brain Research.
