Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Biological Psychology 4th edition is a comprehensive survey of the bases of behaviour that is both authoritative and up to date. Building on the strengths of its predecessor, it continues to offer an outstanding illustration program and a very broad perspective encompassing lucid descriptions of behaviour, evolutionary history, development, proximate mechanisms and applications. The new edition boasts hundreds of new references and hones students' critical thinking ability yet remains reader friendly throughout.
