Written by two masterful researchers and educators, Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology was the first textbook to introduce students to the scientific exploration of human behaviour from a neuroscientist’s perspective.
With this updated edition, Bryan Kolb and Ian Whishaw again take students to the very forefront of one of the most eventful and impactful areas of scientific inquiry today, making an extraordinary amount of recent research and the real-world impact of those discoveries fascinating and accessible.

  • 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 behavior: for example see section on Genes, Environment and Behavior (Ch. 2).



  • New connections made between Brain Function's Influence on Behavior and Behavior'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) summarizes 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).
