Delves into how the central nervous system governs behavior

 

Biopsychology, 9/e, introduces the study of the biology of behavior; that is, the neural mechanisms of psychological processes in the central nervous system. This program combines biopsychogical science and student-oriented discussion, interweaving the basics of this specialized field with clinical case studies and exploring the personal and social implications that arise. The author encourages interactive learning and creative thinking. His clear and engaging presentation makes the material personally and socially relevant to readers.

 

MyPsychLab is an integral part of the Pinel program. Engaging activities and assessments provide a learning and teaching system that transforms students into scientific thinkers. With MyPsychLab, students can watch videos on psychological research and applications, participate in virtual classic experiments, and develop critical thinking skills through writing.

Author Biography

John Pinel, the author of Biopsychology , obtained his Ph.D. from McGill University in Montreal and worked briefly at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, before taking a faculty position at the University of British Columbia, where he is currently Professor Emeritus. Professor Pinel is an award-winning teacher and the author of over 200 scientific papers. However, he feels that Biopsychology is his major career-related accomplishment. “It ties together everything I love about my job; students, teaching, writing, and research.”

 

Pinel attributes much of his success to his wife Maggie who is an artist and professional designer. Over the years, they have collaborated on many projects, and the quality of Biopsychology’s illustrations is largely attributable to her skill and effort.
