Biopsychology is a clear, engaging introduction to current biopsychological theory and research that makes the topics personally and socially relevant to students.
Written in a friendly, engaging tone, the sixth edition continues to emphasize four interwoven themes: “Thinking about Biopsychology,” “Clinical Implications,” “The Evolutionary Perspective,” and “Cognitive Neuroscience.” These themes are integral to each chapter and are highlighted throughout by marginal icons, then summarized at the end of each chapter in a “Themes Revisited” section that provides context for the topics discussed.
What makes this book so popular with instructors and students alike is its unique combination of biopsychological science and a personal, reader-oriented style. Pinel interweaves the fundamentals of the field with clinical case studies, social issues, personal implications, and humorous anecdotes.
An updated and stunning art program illustrates difficult concepts with simple visuals and fresh photos.
Beyond the Brain and Behavior, a CD that accompanies each new textbook, now contains even more animations and demonstrations, video clips, practice tests, electronic flashcards, and annotated readings.
“I can honestly say that the Pinel text is consistently rated the 'best text' out of all those used in courses throughout our department. Students often say it is the 'best text they have ever had in any college course' as well. I agree.”
Michelle Pilati, Rio Hondo College
