Biopsychology introduces the discipline through a unique combination of biopsychological science and personal, reader-oriented discourse. Addressing leaners directly with warmth, enthusiasm and good humor, 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. Personal and social messages, particularly in the chapters on eating, sleeping, sex and drug addiction, encourage you to consider the relevance of biopsychological research to your life outside the classroom.
Throughout the 11th Edition, the authors incorporate 2 new themes that are quickly emerging in the field: thinking about epigenetics and consciousness. They also present up-to-date coverage of recent developments in the discipline.
