Now in its fourth edition, The Brain and Behavior introduces the field of neurobiology of human behaviour to a wide audience, from graduate students to professionals in the fields of psychology, psychiatry and neurology. This comprehensive resource focuses on locating human behaviors to specific regions of the brain, aiming to make a complex topic visually accessible through the inclusion of clear and focused illustrations. This important new edition emphasises recent developments in our understanding of the human brain which have emerged from imaging studies. The text also features patient case histories with documented anatomical evidence, tying the science with actual clinical examples, making it the most accessible book for medical practitioners of all levels. The collaboration between a neuropsychiatrist, a behavioral neurologist and a neuroanatomist has resulted in a book which synthesizes the complex and evolving information on the neurobiology of human behaviour, and presents it in an eminently readable volume.
