Don’t be surprised when they reach their “eureka” moment and exclaim, “Now I understand what was going on with Uncle Edgar!”

“The key issues in teaching biopsychology are getting students focused on the material and making it interesting enough for them to be willing to read the text. Garrett does a good job of assisting with this process of making material meaningful and practical to students.”
