Overview

In its first two editions, this text pioneered a fresh, contemporary approach to undergraduate neuroscience with a biological emphasis. It quickly became the preferred neuroscience text by both faculty and students. This new third edition will take you further, with a more refined approach, new information on emerging trends and discoveries, and much more.

Written specifically to speak to students and stimulate critical thought. Typical neuroscience texts assume that readers possess extensive prior knowledge of biology, chemistry, and physics, while physiological psychology texts often fail to cover the neurobiology that is essential to understanding brain function. Neuroscience: Exploring the Brain strikes the perfect balance, providing a clear, reader-friendly writing style that makes even the most difficult neurobiological principles easy to learn and remember.

A good thing made even better. The authors have expanded on strengths of previous editions by incorporating valuable classroom feedback provided by students and faculty. Now, for the first time, a robust package of ancillaries is available for both students and instructors. These bonus ancillaries will add power to instruction and learning-

this book is outstanding!! It truly makes neuroscience as interesting as it should be. This book tries to exclude some of the more complicated medical terms, and if it uses them, it makes sure to explain them throughly. Perfect book for undergrads.
