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.

Professor James G. Pfaus, Concordia University, Canada
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.
