Biological Psychology offers a highly visual, in-depth guide to the basic biological functions of the brain that you will need to learn throughout the course of your psychology degree. This edition boasts a revamped learning structure with a strong applied focus.

Key features include: 

• New ′real world applications′ boxes that help put theory into practice, showing you the human side of the science
• ′Focus on methods′ boxes that demonstrate the research methods you will use as a biological psychologist to uncover the workings of the brain 
• Key debates to deepen your understanding of contemporary research and its impact  
• Critical thinking questions
• Key points and glossary definitions to solidify your understanding of complex ideas and new terminology
• Further reading suggestions to help build your bibliography for assignments
