9780131975316: Biological Psychology

Biological Psychology 2/e provides a full introduction to the core topics, concepts, research and debates that are central to our understanding of the brain and the biological basis of our behaviour. The new edition has been thoroughly revised and fully updated and includes an expanded treatment of evolutionary psychology and consciousness. 

Assuming no prior knowledge of biology, the text uses everyday experiences to fully explain complex concepts in an interesting and accessible way.  This is complimented by a range of inventive pedagogical features and extensive full-colour illustrations to stimulate interest and help students develop and test their understanding.

Review:

"An ideal guide to the spectrum of topics a student of
biopsychology would want to read about."
Patricia Roberts, University of Bedfordshire


"Very readable and should be accessible to students studying
biological psychology with minimal science background"
Martin R Yeomans, University of Sussex

"The most thoughtful and thought-provoking textbook for the field
available today... Toates combines what is best in biological psychology"
Kent Berridge, University of Michigan

"This is a superb introduction to biological psychology, written
by one of the UK's leading biological psychologists"
Professor Philip J. Corr, University of Wales, Swansea

"This easy-to-read, up-to-date, creative, thorough, and insightful
text is a marvel of classic biological psychology."
Professor James G. Pfaus, Concordia University, Canada

From the Author:

My reasons for writing this book arise from a dilemma and a
long-held conviction associated with this dilemma. It has always seemed to
me that biological psychology is unnecessarily frightening to a large
number of psychology students - I hear so often "I was never any good at
science in school". Yet biology forms an essential part of the subject and
many of this same intimidated population also wish seriously to know about
the biological perspective on psychology. So, I was determined to write a
textbook that would take all of the fear out of the subject but without
diluting the content.
