Second Edition

Kelly G. Lambert and Craig H. Kinsley

  • Connections: Introduces relevant issues related to each chapter to capture the students' attention before diving into the chapter
  • Brain Matters: Interesting boxes featuring material relevant for the chapter content such as effects of humor on immune functions, animal models of depression, and ties between eating and stress
  • A case in point: The individuals living with neural challenges resulting in various mental illnesses are the true heroes of this discipline. We have searched extensively to bring some fascinating cases to this book: a little girl with half her brain removed, an actor battling the symptoms of OCD, a woman's whose artistic abilities drastically changed following a stroke that damaged her brain, a journalist held hostage for seven long years.

  • Hundreds of new references
  • Color insert: To give the students a taste of the wonderful visual complexity of the brain and related issues in the text
