I found this book to be a very good introduction into neuroscience. It is a textbook and will be dry reading for somebody without much patience. Having said that I would certainly recommend this book for anybody wishing to build a knowledge base regarding biological psychology.

Great Introductory Text 7 Jun 2000
By Madaline Barnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have used both the first and second editions of this text in courses for first-year graduate students in a Psy.D. program. The text is clear, the illustrations excellent, as are the color overheads. This is at exactly the right level for students who will be clinicians using this information in understanding and dealing with clients directly (as opposed to researchers).

The best book on the subject 22 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the best introductory book in Biological Psychology/Neuropsychology I have seen so far. Very well written and with beautiful illustrations and pictures that make this interesting subject even better.

Fantastic Overview of Biological Psychology 23 May 2012
By T. A. Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Breedlove's BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY is a wonderful introduction to the intersection of physiology, biology, and behavior. I used this textbook at a graduate level, and it served as a great primer to many areas (sleep, sensation and perception, neurotransmission). With that disclosure, I think that this text would also serve well in a higher-level undergraduate psychology course.

The content is presented in a clean, clear, and concise way; it rarely gets bogged down in jargon or esoteric concepts. Colorful, easy-to-understand figures are presented often to illustrate processes and concepts. There are many images and figures here, which does well to convey things like neurotransmission, but often it breaks up the natural flow of reading. This serves as my only true complaint though; this book is probably the best I've come across for this field.

Word to the wise: you can probably do well with just the fifth edition of this book (which is currently much cheaper). Doing so will result in some missed content concerning function MRI, but most everything else is still well represented.

good end of the second millenium 2 May 2000
By hector h. osorio h - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I had the chance to give a overlook to prof. M.Rosenzweig text "Biological Psychology...", talking with my assistant teacher, I said, at last a nice, and good text for undergraduate student that are not going to be medicine student, but other profesional. This is the text for a change in the teaching of neuroscience; the result of it use will be clear at december 2000. the reasons for this: - clear use of history. - great use of design in each theme treated. - all the aids (cd, etc) are exactly what a beginnig student need. - the use of real neuroanatomy part, are perfectly complement by the pictures, diagram in the text. profs. M. Rosenzweig, A. leiman & S.M. Breedlove thanks from Chile.

Great book! 19 Sep 2008
By R. Orengo-Aguayo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This text book is a really great tool for students that are just starting to learn about biopsych. It is informative and detailed but not to the point to were students can't understand the material. The CD is also a great resource.
