The CD is also a great resource.

Having reviewed several other Biological Psychology textbooks, as well as talking with my students, I think this text is about as good as it gets for one's students.
M. Nadorff
The condition made it very distracting to read and concentrate on the content of the book.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

I highly recommend this book if you want to brush up on you knowledge in this subject. I read 80% of the body text in a matter of 5 days in preparation for a doctoral interview, definitely served me well!

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was an excellent complement to my introductory course to the world of biological psychology. It lays out the material nicely and is not intimidating. I would recommend this textbook to anyone curious about the brain and how it controls every single action of humans!

I read this book to better understand how biological factors affect human psychology. Although it is a student text and intended to include classroom lecture and discussion, it provides a through overview of the subject and a level of detail that helps explain human behavior. A bit academic for some, it will help any reader to appreciate the incredible complex interaction between the biological and psychological.
