Editorial Reviews

Review

Psychobiology of Physical Activity is a long-awaited contribution to the understanding of the physiological connection between motor movement/exercise, mood, health, and brain functioning. It takes the reader beyond the fragmentary patchwork of psychobiological knowledge of the past and presents a well-coordinated journey through the neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neurochemistry of physical activity and the resultant health benefits.
--Robert Perna & Kerri MontoPsycCRITIQUES, 2006, vol. 51, 34. 


I relished the opportunity to review this book given my interdisciplinary research and teaching interests. On balance, there is much to gain by reading this volume and it may lead other readers to reflect and rethink their own approach to studying human physical activity behaviour.
-- Susan H. BackhouseSport and Exercise Psychology Review, 3 (2), 51-53.


This book will introduce many of us to exciting new territory.
-- Roy J. Shephard, Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, 31 (6), 762.
