Bob Garrett Brain & Behavior.jpgMarch 19, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. - A new, second edition of Brain & Behavior: An Introduction to Biological Psychology by Bob L. Garrett, emeritus professor of psychology at DePauw University, is now available from Sage Publications. Among other upgrades, the new edition includes an accompanying Web site and CD-ROM, and contains more than 500 new references, 60+ new illustrations, and the text integrates the latest findings in our rapidly increasing understanding of genetic influences on behavior.

"The key issues in teaching biopsychology are getting students focused on the material and making it interesting enough for them to be willing to read the text," says Susan A. Todd of Bridgewater State College. "Garrett does a good job of assisting with this process of making material meaningful and practical to students.

Adds Texas State University's Natalie Ceballos, "I have been searching for a book that would thoroughly treat all of the concepts in brain and behavior while also being easy enough for the student to read without becoming overwhelmed. I think that the Garrett text might be an answer to my problem."
