This student-friendly text looks at the relationship between biological factors (mostly brain activity) and behaviour, and shows students what biology has to do with psychology. The author reveals how such aspects of brain activity as neurotransmission and neuroanatomy relate to "real" psychological topics such as language and learning, sexual behaviour, anxiety, aggressive behaviour, depression, and schizophrenia. This revised edition features new art, research, examples, and extended coverage of genetics and evolution.

Review:
"Kalat's writing is, as always, rich in content, yet lucid in presentation and design. His choices as to which material to include, and which to ?drop? are without fault; and the weight he gives to each of the parts is just about perfect. . . . His has always been the best text in the area, hands down!" "The author's use of first person helps to give the book more of an adventure travelogue feel than a stuffy textbook feel. I think the book communicates well the fact that biopsychology is a dynamic and empirical field in which important and fascinating new discoveries are being made continuously. Furthermore, I like how the book emphasizes the topics and issues that relate directly to the students? lives." "Kalat's book, in all its revisions, has remained the best book available. I have often thought of writing a text in this area, but it has never been ?necessary? because of Kalat's work. If I had to pick a single strength, it would be the conversational tone of the writing. This a scary topic for many students, and Kalat makes it accessible."
