Author Bob Garrett engages students right from the start by providing student-friendly content and useful pedagogy. The integration of sensory material into behavioral contexts enhances student interest in topics they often regard as boring. The text includes two chapters not found in other biopsychology texts, on the biological bases of intelligence and consciousness. These discussions build on material from earlier chapters to make a final and convincing case for the power of biological psychology to explain human behavior.
