From the great authors Ian Whishaw, Bryan Kolb, and G. Campbell Teskey, An Introduction to Brain and Behavior, 5th edition (ePub/PDF) offers a unique inquiry-based approach to behavioral neuroscience with every chapter focusing on a central question (i.e., “How Does the Nervous System Function?”). The authors emphasize a distinctive clinical perspective, with examples that show college students what happens when common neuronal processes malfunction.
The new 5th edition continues the Brain and Behavior tradition of incorporating the latest research throughout the ebook. Revisions include new material discussing current research on genetic mosaics and modification, including optogenetic techniques and transgenic techniques, hormones, brain development in adolescence, neurotransmitters, color perception, psychobiotics, and biorhythms, as well as updates to the discussion of specific disorders to reflect the current state of understanding, including Parkinson’s disease, depression, and drug dependency, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, glaucoma, sleep disorders, and abnormal development related to prenatal experience.
