This # 1 best selling text in the market, used at over 1000 colleges and universities, examines the relationship between biological factors (mostly brain activity) and behavior, and shows students what biology has to do with psychology. Kalat communicates the excitement of biopsychology as a dynamic and empirical field in which fascinating new discoveries are being made constantly. As he captures and engages readers' interest, Kalat reveals how aspects of brain activity such as neurotransmission and neuroanatomy relate to real psychological topics such as language and learning, sexual behavior, anxiety, aggressive behavior, depression, and schizophrenia. Now thoroughly revised throughout with the latest research, a new design, a beautiful new art program, new pedagogy and new technology resources, this Seventh Edition maintains the strengths of past editions while adding a whole new look and feel in less than 600 pages. Packaged free with every student copy of the text, this interactive CD-ROM provides study tools, hands-on activities, Web exploration opportunities, chapter-by-chapter quizzing, video clips, and much more.
