Drawing on decades of teaching and research experience, Bryan Kolb and Ian Whishaw offer a proven framework for exploring the biological basis of behavior. Each chapter of An Introduction to Brain and Behavior explores a specific question asked by working neuroscientists and students (i.e. "Why do we have a brain?"  "How is the nervous system organized?").  This approach brings coherence to a vast subject, and helps students understand what information is important as their study of brain and behavior progresses chapter to chapter.
