John P.J.Pinel provides students with a clear presentation of concepts in his textbook Biopsychology (8th Edition), ISBN 9780205832569. The fundamental framework of biopsychology is provided to users through an approach that connects the principles to them on a personal and social level. Unique from the normal textbook style, this book uses clinical case studies, social issues, personal suggestions, as well as entertaining stories to integrate the basic concepts. This text also boasts various other effective instructional features including boldface key terms, marginal definitions, exercises, discussion questions, exhaustive appendices, and appealing, colored graphics. John P.J.Pinel received his Ph.D. from McGill University in Montreal and is currently serving as Professor Emeritus at the University of British Columbia. He is an award-winning teacher and the author of over 200 scientific papers. Pinel strategically organizes the contents of Biopsychology (8th Edition) across six sections and 18 chapters. Part 1 serves as an introduction with a chapter devoted to answering the question 'What is Biopsychology?' Part 2 presents readers with information on the 'Foundations of Biopsychology' with chapters discussing such topics as evolution, genetics, the anatomy of the nervous system, neural conduction and synaptic transmission, as well as research methods of biopsychology. Part 3 investigates the various aspects of 'Sensory and Motor Systems' with chapters presenting coverage of the visual system, mechanisms of perception, and the sensorimotor system. 'Brain Plasticity' is the focus of part 4 with topics presented such as development of the nervous system, brain damage and neuroplasticity, learning, memory, and amnesia. Part 6 presents chapters devoted to 'Biopsychology of Motivation' through the inclusion of hunger, eating, and health, hormones and sex, sleep, dreaming, and Circadian rhythms, drug addiction and the brain's reward circuits. The final section of this book is that of part 6 focusing on 'Disorders of Cognition and Emotion.' These concluding chapters take a look at lateralization, language, and the split brain, the biopsychology of emotion, stress, health, and psychiatric disorders.
