    Yes it took me over a year to finish this book. It also took me over a year to finish the course I was reading it for. It was a blood letting. But I have to say. Worth every excruciating minute. Real solid text book. I liked Kylat’s Biological Psychology better. But this is a really good solid textbook.

    Después de acabar la carrera y "perder" el libro en una mudanza, volví a comprarlo (esta edición, que era la que había en ese momento). Además de ser un manual básico de Psicología, está explicado de una manera muy amena (aunque a veces con vocabulario un tanto especializado). Si volviera a perderlo, volvería a comprarlo. Vale la pena. Ahora lo recuerdo con más cariño que antes, porque cargar con este tocho en la mochila para ir a clase, era un suplicio :P Después de acabar la carrera y "perder" el libro en una mudanza, volví a comprarlo (esta edición, que era la que había en ese momento).

    No nonsense, dry like the Sahara, but manages a difficult exercise. In an era where social constructivism flies high, this book is a summary of the research, dry conclusion after dry conclusion, citation after citation, of how very biological factors such as hormones, physiology, prenatal exposure and such influence human behaviour. Animal studies are mentioned as well. Conclusions are sometimes contextualised which helps to understand what the stats say and don't say. The book is however not ess No nonsense, dry like the Sahara, but manages a difficult exercise.

The book is however not essentialist, it leaves room where room needs to be left to consider the influence of culture, but also doesn't beat around the bush when the science is pretty clear on the influence of biology on behaviour (like gendered toy choices in children and even primates) - which is an equilibrium that's not easy to achieve.

    I've used this book as the text in teaching my physiological psychology class ever since I started back in 1986. This is the latest edition. One of the clearest and most complete textbooks out there. Excellent work. I've used this book as the text in teaching my physiological psychology class ever since I started back in 1986.

    I used the 5th edition of this book when I studied Neuroscience in the 1990's. This year I bought the 12th edition and read it cover-to-cover. What a great overview of current Neuroscience research! Fantastic book!

    Informative but too many topics covered. Each chapter could have been its own book. I followed the information, but I don’t feel like I learned much.

    Very well organized and a good treatment of the various topics in behavioral neuroscience. Didn't read the entire text, since it was condensed for a course, but I may go back and read some more selected topics that I'm interested in for my career progression.

    If you want to learn about physiological psychology this seems like the place to start. It is long and dense but readable and well organized, and seeded with interesting anecdotal topics. It didn't say enough about anatomy for my purposes but anatomy is difficult and boring so I'm sure it will be enough for most people.

    I found this text extremely elementary. Probably useful if you're just beginning to explore neuroscience and behaviour, however it will not take you very far. It does explain topics very clearly with good diagrams. I found this text extremely elementary.

    Very informative text, invaluable to students studying any aspect of Biological Psychology. Probably a bit too indepth for those starting out - but presevere and reap the satisfaction of reading one of the better books for this branch of Psychology.

    Had to read this for my Psycho-pharmacology class, so I can't really say I liked it. However, it was very informative. It went into a lot of detail about neurotransmitters & specific disorders. I'll probably keep it around for quick reference. Had to read this for my Psycho-pharmacology class, so I can't really say I liked it. However, it was very informative.

    This has been my favourite textbook of all time, and the first I read cover-to-cover. Well laid-out, comprehensive, and engagingly written to the point of boasting a few laugh-out-loud moments. Excellent introduction to the interface between Physiology, Neurology, and Psychology.

    Amazingly fascinating! Loved this textbook and learned so much. Although some of it was incredibly scientific that made it hard to comprehend it had wonderful portions that made everything understandable. Loved this textbook.

    I'm reading this strictly for class, however, the mind is fascinating, you know? If you happen to pick up this book for some reason, do the blind spot exercise on Pg. 173. Amazing!
