Have you ever wondered how it's possible to walk down a street, with your thoughts on what you're going to have for lunch? What's telling your legs to move while your mind is on other things? And how are you reading these words right now? The simple answer: it's your brain. Often a complex subject to tackle, this book has been written with the first-time learner in mind to guide the reader through the physiological basis of the brain-behaviour link, exploring such fascinating topics as sensation, memory and emotion. This book has been designed to offer an easy and comprehensive read for students in need of an introductory text to the various faculties and functions of the brain and an explanation of how these are central to actively producing human behavior. Apt for undergraduate students studying biological psychology and neuroscience wanting to consolidate their understanding of the brain.
