Brain & Behavior
An Introduction to Behavioral Neuroscience

Fifth Edition (International Student Edition)

February 2018 | SAGE Publications, Inc

In the Fifth Edition, bestselling author Bob Garrett is joined by co-author Jerry Hough. Maintaining a 'big-picture' approach, they showcase our rapidly increasing understanding of the biological foundations of behaviour, along with thought-provoking examples and the latest research.

This new edition includes coverage of new projects dedicated to brain science research, such as the Human Connectome Project (to map all the brain's connections), BigBrain and The Brain Observatory (3-D maps of the brain) and the Human Brain Project (simulation of brain activity by a computer).
