This fantastic introduction to Biological Psychology brings the subject to life in a way that no traditional textbook can. I will certainly be recommending it. Brian Wink, Southampton Solent University

My first reactionwas that it was both imaginative and courageous. Having read it, I would add that it also makes a significant contribution to the available texts on biological psychology. Thisapproach is just what students are looking for. Graham Mitchell, University of Northampton

Taking a refreshingly innovative approach to the subject, Biological Psychology: An Illustrated Survival Guide uses cartoons as an effective teaching medium. Each chapter is organised into a mini lecture, and offers an accessible introduction tokey topics including:

  • The brain and nervous system
  • Vision and audition
  • The mechanical and chemical senses
  • Emotions and sexual behaviour
  • Memory and learning

Intended to complement traditional textbooks in the area, Biological Psychology: An Illustrated Survival Guide provides undergraduate and A level students with an alternative introduction tobiological psychology andan invaluable study aid.
