  • Unique layout compared to the competition! Text is on the left page with illustration on facing page. A cover flap can cover the illustration's labels for easy self-testing.

Acknowledging the difficulty many readers have when first attempting to learn about the brain's psychological functions, the authors of A Colorful Introduction to the Human Brain have created a book that makes the fascinating world of brain psychology research accessible to readers with little or no background in neuroscience. Readers learn the material in several steps. First they read through the introduction and definitions on the left page; then they color the illustration on the facing page; and finally they use the special cover flap to conceal the illustration labels while checking their knowledge, until they feel they have completely learned the material. Review exercises at the end of each chapter provide an opportunity for self-assessment, with answers provided at the end of the book.


John Pinel, a professor of biopsychology at the University of British Columbia, is an award-winning teacher and the author of over 200 scientific articles. However, he is best known for his reader-oriented writing. His clear concise introductions to behavioral neuroscience have inspired, enthralled, and amused a generation of students and lay people.

Intro. to brain anatomy & neuroanatomical terminology, incl. 72 learning units of 4-5 neuronatomical structures each.

    A colorful Introduction to the anatomy of the Human Brain

    I actually purchased this book because it was required as a textbook in my Graduate studies for Special Education. To be honest when I first opened the book I thought, you have got to be kidding. I am not much into coloring, but as I worked in this book I found myslef appreciating the task, the coloring was in many ways relaxing which enhanced the learning, namely the structure and systems of each part of the brain. I would greatly recommend this book for those who are beginning to study the brain anatomy, along with lecture study and other forms of study, this coloring book will reinforce the learning. Thanks.

    Provides the quick and dirty on neuroanatomy.

    I was a clinical psych grad student studying for comprehensive exams, and I found neuroanatomy very intimidating. This provided me with a comprehensive, succinct, and helpful knowledge base in the subject. The organization of the book and the variety of teaching formats used helped me not only learn and remember the material, but also to consolidate what I learned. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted general information about the subject or anyone who wanted a more detailed explanation of the intricacies of the brain, its parts, and their functions.
