A student-focused approach to how the central nervous system governs behaviour

Biopsychology, 11th Edition presents a clear, engaging introduction to the discipline through a unique combination of biopsychological science and personal, reader-oriented discourse. Addressing students directly, authors John Pinel and Steven Barnes interweave the fundamentals of the field with clinical case studies, social issues, personal implications, useful metaphors, and memorable anecdotes. The 11th Edition incorporates two new emerging themes (“thinking about epigenetics” and “consciousness”) and includes up-to-date coverage of recent developments in the field.
