As technology has made imaging of the brain noninvasive and inexpensive, nearly every psychologist in every subfield is using pictures of the brain to show biological connections to feelings and behavior. Handbook of Neuroscience for the Behavioral Sciences, Volume I provides psychologists and other behavioral scientists with a solid foundation in the increasingly critical field of neuroscience. Current and accessible, this volume provides the information they need to understand the new biological bases, research tools, and implications of brain and gene research as it relates to psychology.

Reviews

Berntson and Cacioppo (coeditors, Social Neuroscience) amass the scholarly essays of 63 field specialists in this subject overview. While several essays are interesting and thought-provoking even for general readers, most are largely for practitioners and specialists, offering empirical data, subject theory, and field-specific terminology. Volume 1 is divided into four segments and 13 chapter essays, from foundation concepts to reflexive thought patterns. Volume 2 offers three segments and 35 chapter essays on reactive mental processes and psychological disorders. An ambitious, multivalent complement to the more developmentally specific Oxford Handbook of Developmental Behavioral Neurosciences. Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
