This textbook is one of the most straightforward and easy to read neuroscience textbooks I have encountered. The book provides a lot of detail about the history of the field as well as the evidence for conclusions about the brain based on detailed descriptions of experiments conducted. The textbook is definitely more psychology focused than hardcore science focused but that makes the book easier to read and conclusions about the important information easy to conclude. It is quite easy to draw out what is important and what is less important for a basic neuroscience student. This would also be a great reference text for simple information about the brain and cognition. Provides a good background including: perception, attention, imagery, memory, action, language, evolution, as well as the history of the field. A great textbook for introductory classes and background information.
