This book is packaged with a MyPsychKit Student Access Code Card. Pinel encourages interactive learning and creative thinking. His clear and engaging presentation makes the material personally and socially relevant to the reader. For undergraduate junior/senior level courses in Behavioral Neuroscience, Physiology of Behavior, Biopsychology, Human Neuropsychology, or Physiological Psychology. 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.

John Pinel, the author of Biopsychology, obtained his Ph.D. from McGill University in Montreal and worked briefly at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, before taking a faculty position at the University of British Columbia, where he is currently Professor Emeritus. Professor Pinel is an award-winning teacher and the author of over 200 scientific papers. However, he feels that Biopsychology is his major career-related accomplishment. "It ties together everything I love about my job; students, teaching, writing, and research." Pinel attributes much of his success to his wife Maggie who is an artist and professional designer. Over the years, they have collaborated on many projects, and the quality of Biopsychology's illustrations is largely attributable to her skill and effort.
