An Introduction to Brain and Behavior

Bryan Kolb, Ian Whishaw, G Campbell Teskey

In this unique inquiry-based introduction to behavioral neuroscience each chapter focuses on a central question (i.e., “How Does the Nervous System Function?”). The authors emphasize a distinctive clinical perspective, with examples showing students what happens when common neuronal processes malfunction.
The new edition continues the tradition of incorporating the latest research into the fundamentals of nervous system functioning and the interaction between our behavior and our brains. Revisions include new material discussing current research on genetic mosaics and modification, including:

Transgenic techniques and optogenetic techniques

Neurotransmitters

Hormones

Brain development in adolescence

Psychobiotics

Color perception

Biorhythms

The book has also been updated to reflect the latest findings on specific disorders including Parkinson disease, Alzheimer disease, depression and drug dependency, sleep disorders, schizophrenia, glaucoma, and abnormal development related to prenatal experience.
