Biological Psychology 13th Edition by James W. Kalat
Dr. James W. Kalat’s BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY is the most widely used text in the course area, and for good reason: a high level of scholarship, clear writing with amusing anecdotes and precise examples. Kalat’s main goal is to make Biological Psychology accessible to Psychology students, not just to Biology majors and pre meds. Another goal is to convey the excitement of the search for biological explanations of behavior, and Kalat delivers. Updated with new topics, examples and recent research findings, the thirteenth edition continues this book’s tradition of quality.
