Basics of Biopsychology is a unique combination of science and personal reader-oriented discourse weaving the fundamentals of the field with clinical case studies, social issues, personal implications and humorous anecdotes. It is a friendly mentor that speaks directly to students.
Basics of Biopsychology conveys the excitement of scientific inquiry for students with little background in the biological sciences. Pedagogy facilitates the acquisition and retention of information with an emphasis on clear thinking and a youthful design that will immediately attract and engage students, lots of interest-generating photos and illustrations, and chapter-ending visual summaries.
Continuing the Chain of Discovery and Understanding
Beginning Behavioral Research introduces students to the broad base and conceptual underpinnings of basic principles of ethical research with human participants from (a) the development of ideas and testable hypotheses, to (b) the selection of appropriate methods of measurement and data collection, to (c) the design and implementation of empirical research, to (d) the statistical analysis and interpretation of results, and finally, to (e) the reporting of findings and conclusions. The authors emphasize good research, empirical reasoning, and the continuity of psychological science in the continuing cycle of discovery and understanding.
The beginning in the title of this text is intended to have a double meaning. It not only describes the level of the material but also conveys the idea of a journey. For some students, the journey will be completed at the end of the course in which this text is used. For others, the journey will have just begun. In either case, students will have a deeper understanding of the applicability and limits of the scientific method. They will also have learned how to frame questions about the scientific results they read or hear about in the media in ways that will allow them to reach beyond other people’s conclusions or assertions and decide for themselves what is true.
