"This is probably the most painless introduction to neuroanatomy I have seen. It reads like a narrative, with structures introduced in the context of their functions. I think this will make it much easier for students to grasp and remember the basic organization of the nervous system." - Martha Leah Chaiken-, Johnson State College & Hofstra University
"...the scholarship is not only current, but it is placed well in the historical context from which it emerged...It is up-to-date, and most importantly, takes a very empirical approach to introducing and evaluating important concepts in the field." - Michael Jarvinen, Emmanuel College
"Dr. Lambert accomplishes something that other textbooks are missing: closing the circle on how brain affects behavior and vice versa." - Susanne Brummelte, Wayne State University
"Students will learn more from this text than others based upon its style of case studies, anecdotes, and laboratory explorations that all integrate into clear concepts for the introductory level biopsychologist." - Lorenz S. Neuwirth, SUNY Old Westbury
"Something very refreshing about this book is its emphasis on cross-cultural research findings, which makes the book all the more appealing and applicable to a diverse range of students." - Neelam Rattan, San Jose State University
"I really like the storytelling style. The content is descriptive, engaging, and readable to students. As many students in the course are majoring in different fields, it's very important to use language that can entertain and engage them." - Guangying Wu, George Washington University
