This textbook should be of particular interest to undergraduate students as by reading it they will grasp the fundamentals of brain anatomy and brain functions and then further progress onto areas such as the effects of drug-taking, learning and memory, movement, eating and sleeping behaviours, psychological disorders and more. The book encourages and emphasises the importance of critical thinking and linking research areas, something that will allow students to access the top band of marks.
Very accessibly written, and with some especially interesting and modern "spotlight" chapters, covering controversies and current issues. The book itself is also very colourful and engaging, which is especially important for material that many undergraduate psychology students tend to feel some anxiety around.
This is an in-depth yet extremely accessible text which will enable students to build confidence in their understanding of a topic which many find challenging in Psychology.
Very detailed, comprehensive and rigorous!
Well set out, easy to follow in sequential order of topics.
Relevant to those who wish to focus on a particular aspect as well being helpful as a source for research project
This book brings together neurobiology and psychology in a comprehensive and accessible way. I have not come across a text which addresses biological psychology (usually it is either neuroscience or psychology), so this is a very welcome text. Clear colour diagrams, boxes with specific topics, demarkation of specialist terms, exercises, further reading and online resources all help students to get to grips with the material. Two pages at the start explain how to make the most of the book. The text is easy to read and the book stays open when put on a table.
This is an excellent and interesting book that goes into an excellent level of detail for students who are learning about the biological perspective in psychology.
