Editorial Reviews

“The text consistently excels….. The entire text is honed and refined to the extent that students reading the text will be transformed into reasonably sophisticated biopsychologists by the book’s end….. I think that many of the chapters are close to perfection.” -- Nancy J. Woolf, UCLA


 

“Pinel is an excellent writer…. [The case studies] are a major strength over Kalat. These sections should pique the students’ interests and hopefully help them appreciate the relevance of this course.” — Joseph H. Porter, Virginia Commonwealth University

 

“When I review a possible book for adoption, I first turn to the chapter on axonal and synaptic transmission.  A really great author should be able to make these topics interesting and engaging.  Pinel has succeeded in doing this by taking some new directions that I applaud.”  -- Douglas Engwall, Central CT State

 

“Dr. Pinel has a wonderful style that makes complicated material accessible. This is particularly helpful for those students who might be intimidated by the ‘hard sciences.’ … I would like to thank Dr. Pinel for his efforts over the years to provide clear and concise material for students to appreciate the depth and fascination of biopsychology. Congratulations on a fantastic job! ” — David Holtzman, University of Rochester

 

“Pinel’s use of anecdotes and personal stories is superior to Kalat’s.” – Stanley N. Bursten, Santa Barbara City College

 

“I really liked the illustrations.  I thought the attention to detail, especially, in labeling all of the important structures and pathways was outstanding.  This may the first book in which illustrations are complementary to the text, as opposed to something fun to look at while you read.” — Rita Michelle Lewellen, Cerritos College
