- Unique, neuroscientific perspective on human behaviour
- Takes recent research and discoveries and makes them accessible for students
- Highlights include a new chapter opening Portrait on neuroprosthetics (Ch. 9) and a case study on childhood amnesia (Ch. 18).
- More emphasis on genetic and epigenetic influences on behaviour: for example see section on Genes, Environment and Behaviour (Ch. 2).
- New connections made between Brain Function's Influence on Behaviour and Behaviour's Influence on Brain Function
- Up-to-date coverage of imaging methods, such as static, dynamic, electrophysiological imaging methods currently in use. A new section, Comparing Brain-Imaging Techniques and Uses, (in Ch. 7, Imaging the Brain's Activity) summarises the pros and cons of each method, including relative costs.
- More emphasis on connectivity, highlighting the connections among network nodes and hubs, pathways, and functionality
- New "Maze" Icon indicates discussions of the development of testing methods, their experimental bases, and their role in neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and other disciplines (see The Social Brain, Ch. 20).
