Brain and Behavior

Second Edition

David Eagleman and Jonathan Downar

Sinauer Associates is an imprint of Oxford University Press

  • Starting Out scenarios begin each chapter with a gripping real-world example of chapter concepts, from hikers on Mount Everest who make deadly mistakes, to a boy who functions normally following the removal of half of his brain.
  • Neuroscience of Everyday Life explains how neuroscience directly relates to our daily lives, like why people have difficulty multitasking.
  • A principles-based approach relying on overarching principles rather than lists or facts-to help students see the big picture.
  • A progressive structure that begins with the basics of the nervous system before moving on to the brain's interaction with the world and then on to more complex interactions.
  • An emphasis on case studies, surprising examples from everyday life, and examples in which advances in neuroscience can benefit society are sprinkled throughout the chapters.
  • A clear, modern art program that provides attractive biological drawings to help convey important concepts and information.
  • The Bigger Picture connects neuroscience to larger concepts and questions, from social to ethical to legal to historical. Examples include how neuroscience can help us make better decisions and whether we will soon be able to equip our brains with new senses.
  • Research Methods show how we know what we know about the brain, presenting important research techniques and indicating the types of research questions that these techniques have been used to investigate.
  • Chapter-Ending Key Principles summarize the main points covered in the chapter-with one principle corresponding to each main heading-to remind students of what they have just learned.
  • Review Questions test recall and understanding of the key information presented in the chapter to aid with studying.
  • Critical-Thinking Questions ask the student to apply and extend information from the chapter to new scenarios to master the material.

New to this Edition:

  • An enhanced e-book offers interactive multimedia integrated with the chapters and is ideal for self-study. Chapters include the following:
  • Simple and Complex Animations: A set of detailed animations helps students understand some of the book's more complex topics and processes by presenting them in a clear, easy-to-follow narrative.
  • Videos: A collection of videos to accompany various chapters helps bring key concepts from the textbook to life. Ideal for use as lecture starters or paired with assignments.
  • Flashcards: Interactive flashcard activities are an effective way for students to learn and review all the important terminology.
  • Practice Questions: Students can test their knowledge with practice questions at the end of each section in each chapter. This feature is available only in the eBook.
  • Updated to reflect current research and reorganized for clarity and readability.
  • New activities and case studies.
