Neil Carlson, U Mass Amherst
Emeritus at the University of Masschusetts at Amherst, Neil Carlson is an active researcher focusing on the relationship between the brain and behavior – specifically the role of the limbic system in learning and species-typical behavior. Dr. Carlson received his undergraduate degree and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. In addition to writing Psychology: The Science of Behavior, Dr. Carlson is also the author of two best-selling physiology of behavior textbooks – Psychology: The Science of Behavior and Foundations of Physiological Psychology.
