Summary

Discovering Biological Psychologyis a text for the beginning undergraduate course in biological, or physiological, psychology. The book provides a foundational understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system and its relationship to both typical and disordered human behavior. Written by an author with more than 25 years of teaching experience at schools ranging from community colleges to the Ivy League, this text presents classic concepts, current topics, and cutting-edge research in a style that is at once accessible to beginning and less well-prepared students and appealing to students with stronger backgrounds. Instructors using this text can teach a rigorous course that does not oversimplify the material, while keeping students excited and engaged. An effective illustration program supports and clarifies the content. Visible student-centered pedagogy guides students through complex scientific concepts. In presenting a new topic, the author creates a compelling narrative to bring together multiple related concepts.
