This # 1 best selling text in the market, used at over 1000 colleges and universities, examines the relationship between biological factors (mostly brain activity) and behavior, and shows students what biology has to do with psychology. Kalat communicates the excitement of biopsychology as a dynamic and empirical field in which fascinating new discoveries are being made constantly. As he captures and engages readers' interest, Kalat reveals how aspects of brain activity such as neurotransmission and neuroanatomy relate to "real" psychological topics such as language and learning, sexual behavior, anxiety, aggressive behavior, depression, and schizophrenia. Now thoroughly revised throughout with the latest research, a new design, a beautiful new art program, new pedagogy and new technology resources, this Seventh Edition maintains the strengths of past editions while adding a whole new look and feel in less than 600 pages. Packaged free with every student copy of the text, this interactive CD-ROM provides study tools, hands-on activities, Web exploration opportunities, chapter-by-chapter quizzing, video clips, and much more. The CD-ROM is integrated at the end of chapters of the text, drawing connections between the CD-ROM and the book. Over 40 minutes of video on the CD-ROM allow students to explore biopsychology concepts in action. Each clip includes an audio introduction by Jim Kalat, relevant figure art from the text, as well as questions that help students understand the connection between the video clips and the art. For the professor, BioPsychLink Presentation CD-ROM for Biopsychology-Advanced PowerPoint presentation software-offers lecture outlines and classroom presentation capability, using art from the text and resources from our exclusive arrangement with CNN videos.

"This latest edition of Kalat is very exciting. There is a magical thread woven through the entire book making this text a sure winner among professors and students alike. This thread I am referring to is the timely emphasis on the quintessence of higher psychological function: that is the issue of consciousness." "For Chapter One, the greatest strength is the first thing the author says that biological psychology is the most interesting topic in the world, and how he goes on to justify this position. I couldn't agree with him more and I actually make that statement at the beginning of my course each time I teach it. There IS NO substitute for an enthusiastic position and letting students know that from the outset is TERRIFIC!" "I would describe Kalat's text as one of the most approachable texts on biological psychology. It covers all the important topics clearly and comprehensively. Students find the text interesting and enjoyable, and most importantly, they learn and remember the material presented."
