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.

About the Author
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.

This book has awesome illustrations. Not to mention its beautiful hardcover
By Amazon Customer
This book has awesome illustrations. Not to mention its beautiful hardcover. At first I was debating whether to rent or buy this book, but I decided it would probably be cool to keep it. I definitely recommend this book even if it is not for a class. It was definitely really easy to read and very easy to understand. Biopsyc courses can be difficult, but this book really saved my grade. Overall I thought it was a good read and would recommend to anyone interested in both psychology and biology. The price I paid for this book was reasonable. Wayyyy better than the prices at my school’s bookstore. Thanks to this book I got a solid A. However my only problem with this book was that it was heavy and bulky to carry around in my backpack and they don’t offer a downloadable version of the textbook.
Overall, don’t be that student that thinks that you don’t need a book to pass the class. TRUST ME it will help you.

It's Interesting, but not the best.
I first thought this book was going to be super helpful in understanding everything about Biopsychology. and it turns out, it's not as easy to understand as I thought. I think this is the "book's fault" in part, due to the fact that each sentence is very dense. I just don't think it has to be that way. Even if it's a college textbook, I think there needs to be more elaboration on sentences and ideas.
Other than that, i like the fact that it has regular size "text".

I highly recommend getting this book if you need it
By Elizabeth Chupp
This book has been a true blessing in helping me with the course. It outlines various systems and actions to a T and always explains in detail how or why something gets done in your brain. Very helpful if you need it for class. I highly recommend getting this book if you need it!
