Part 1 introduces, defines and illustrates the location of the major brain structures, while Part 2 describes their psychological functions and positions in functioning circuits.
    • The illustrations and text are designed to introduce key concepts and major structures clearly and simply without unnecessary detail, focusing only on key neuroanatomical concepts and structures.
    • A fold-over cover flap attached to the back cover can be used to cover illustration labels on the pages in the book for review and self-testing.

    About the Author

    John Pinel, the author of Biopsychology, obtained his PhD from McGill University in Montreal. He worked briefly at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before taking up his current position at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Professor Pinel is an award-winning teacher and the author of over 200 scientific papers; however, he feels that Biopsychology is his major career-related accomplishment. “It ties together everything that I love about my job: students, teaching, writing, and research.”

     

    When asked about his personal interests, Professor Pinel speaks glowingly of his partner, Maggie, and son, Greg. The high quality of the illustrations in Biopsychology is largely attributable to the effort and talents of Maggie, who is an artist and technical writer. Greg is currently completing his PhD at the London School of Economics, specializing in social and educational programs for indigenous peoples.

     

    “I get most of my exercise by rehearsing and performing West African drum rhythms,” Professor Pinel says. “For a peak mental and physical experience, a bit of Kpanlogo with my friend, Nigerian drum master Kwasi Iruoje is hard to beat.” Most of Professor Pinel’s relaxation comes from cuddling his cats, Sambala, Rastaman, and Squeak.

    More About the Author

    John Pinel, the author of Biopsychology (9th Edition), obtained his Ph.D. from McGill University in Montreal and worked briefly at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, before taking a faculty position at the University of British Columbia, where he is currently Professor Emeritus.

    Professor Pinel is an award-winning teacher and the author of over 200 scientific papers. However, he feels that Biopsychology is his major career-related accomplishment. "It ties together everything I love about my job; students, teaching, writing, and research." Pinel attributes much of his success to his wife Maggie who is an artist and professional designer. Over the years, they have collaborated on many projects, and the quality of Biopsychology's illustrations is largely attributable to her skill and effort.

    Pinel is an enthusiastic West African drummer who performs at local clubs, festivals, and drum circles with Nigerian drum master Kwasi Iruoje. For relaxation, he loves to cuddle his three cats: Rastaman, Sambala, and Squeak.

    This is a good book for someone who knows next to nothing about neuroanatomy but if you have at least a basic working knowledge of the brain then this book is not for you. I'd suggest going for the popular competitor. I'm a Neuroscience Undergrad and wanted a simple neuroanatomy coloring book to pass the time and seal in anatomical structures but this book was overly simplistic. I ordered the competitor and am much happier with that purchase. HOWEVER, if you are new to the world of neuroanatomy I think this book will be a solid buy - it gives clear descriptions and the drawings are not complicated. It is for that reason I give it 4 stars. It would be 5 but some of the enlargements for the pictures looked distorted which made the book seem "cheap", other than that, for a neuroanatomy novice/beginner - this is a good book, but if you have already learned a thing or two about the brain, go with the competitor.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful June 24, 2009
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I bought this book to help me with my cognitive neuroscience class, and it proved to be very useful. I think it'd work best for those who are visual learners. Rather than looking at a diagram in a book and memorizing it, I was spending a few minutes on certain sections of the brain to color them in, which made the parts (and functions, which I kept reviewing while coloring) stick in my mind.

    I am interested in neuroanatomy and needed a tool to help me learn. This book has great stories about the brain to accompany the coloring pages and the information is organized in a very helpful way. I would highly recommend this book.

    5.0 out of 5 stars For brains itching to know more about themselves September 23, 2009
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    If you study anything that has to do with the brain - which is everything - you will benefit from this book. My specialty is linguistics, and I found this to be an outstanding resource on learning more about overall brain function as well as how the brain processes language. Read all of the other reviews for more information - they are in my view all on target. This book is fun and pedagogically sound - very highly recommended.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great Accompaniment December 28, 2013
    By Bella
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I purchased this book as a companion to John P. J. Pinel's Biopsycholgoy (8th edition) for a class. This workbook was not required, but I found it very helpful for two reasons:

    1. I have never taken a class involving neuroscience of any kind, and I knew that these concepts would be difficult for me to fully understand. This workbook broke down the parts of the human nervous system in a way that made it simple and straightforward.
    2. I found it exceedingly comforting and relaxing to simply color. I enjoyed choosing what colors to use, shading in the appropriate shapes, while simultaneously learning. This subject matter can be intimidating for some, and stressful for others, and the act of coloring removes some of these boundaries.

    The workbook also acts as a study guide...there is a back flap that is designed to cover over the names of the structures, and you can go back and test yourself without peeking. The facing page of each coloring diagram includes a brief overview of the specific elements you are coloring and how they relate to one another. These descriptions are very brief summaries which provide a good reinforcement of what you learned from whatever textbook you are using (assuming you are in a class on biopsychology, neuropsychology, or a biology class about the nervous system).

    I would recommend this book to anyone who feels that they need some extra help in understanding the complex structures of the human nervous system.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful! February 10, 2008
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This book was very helpful for my 4000 level Neuro class that I had to take. It took me back to the simple basics that I somehow never had or forgot and built from there, showing how the basic developed into the more complex structures. The simple explainations for different structures also includes functions which I need as a Psyc. major. No coronal views are included, but the other views are very helpful. Grab your colored pencils & have fun!
