5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 7 July 2011
This review is from: Biological Psychology Plus Access Card for Gradetracker Website (Paperback)
This book has been a life saver for me. I highly recommend it as a comprehensive textbook for students from a psychological background who desire a deeper understanding of the biological basis underlying the psychology. Absolutely fascinating. The author brings the subject alive, and truely bridges the gap between the multitudes of specialties that constitute this discipline. The book provides an introduction at a neuronal level, and shows the relevance of the broader issues of consciousness, behaviour and cognition. Fred Toates is exceptional in his ability to remain sensitive to the needs of the student and the book is an absolute bible to dip in and out of with ease. Anatomical and physiological mechanisms involved in perception movement,and motivation.... the list encompasses all psychological phenomena. And concepts such as somatosensory, plasticity, homeostasis are embraced;
providing an evolutionary, developmental, and comparative perspective of the issues and overview not only the normal but the casestudies of the abnormal, are illuminating and so well written that it brings the subject alive. An absolute must for students or those desiring a deeper understanding the subject.
