About the Author
Bryan Kolb received his Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University in 1973. He conducted postdoctoral work at the University of Western Ontario and the Montreal Neurological Institute.He moved to the University of Lethbridge in 1976, where he is currently Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and holds a Board of Governor's Chair in Neuroscience. His current research examines how neurons of the cerebral cortex change in response to various factors, including hormones, experience, psychoactive drugs, neurotrophins, and injury, and how these changes are related to behavior in the normal and diseased brain. Kolb is a Killam Fellow (Canada Council) and a Fellow of the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA), the American Psychological Association, the American Psychological Society, and the Royal Society of Canada. He is a recipient of the Hebb Prize from CPA and from the Canadian Society for Brain, Behaviour, and Cognitive Science (CSBBCS) and is a former president of the CSBBCS. He is one of the theme leaders in the Canadian Stroke Network. He is an adjunct professor at the University of British Columbia and University of Calgary, as well as the Hotchkiss Brain Institute in Calgary, Alberta.Ian Q. Whishaw received his Ph.D. from the University of Western Ontario in 1971.He moved to the University of Lethbridge in 1970, where he is currently Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and holds a Board of Governor's Chair in Neuroscience.

Coverage is comprehensive, with coverage of neurological and psychiatric disorders and neuropsychological testing which was absent from other neuroscience texts I have read to date. Each chapter begins with a clinical vignette and concludes with a summary of the key points of that chapter. The art program is mixed: some diagrams, especially the schematic diagrams, do an excellent job of explicating and expanding upon the textual content. The imaging data, too, is very helpful. Other diagrams, however, the photos in particular, do little more than repeat the information in the text. I suppose this is to assist those with a visual learning style, but they seemed superfluous to this reader.
This readable and accessible text is highly recommended, especially as a starting point for those interested in the fascinating subject of neuroscience. I've finally found the five-star introductory text I've been seeking. What had been murky from reading more advanced texts has now become much more clear.
