Please try again later. The first two words that come to mind are “fascinating” and “challenging,” in that order. You’ll feel like a cognitive neuroscientist by the time you’re done. I don’t think my amygdala and prefrontal cortex will ever be the same, not to mention my hippocampus.

Sometimes I think I’m having a “spliit-brain” chapter 16 experience, and my corpus callosum the largest cerebral commissure hasn’t even been severed! Get ready to be “wowed” by a part of the brain thought to p.jj.pinel the neural representation of thought’ p. I virtually knew little or nothing about these and other subjects of the book, but was drawn in by the stunning study of the brain.

Bottom line, the whole experience of reading and studying this book is worth every neuron spent on doing so.

It’s a wild ride! Clarified many topics from other psych classes. Really enjoyed this book. Used it jkhn Physiology of Psychology class.

It covered topics that I had hit in both Intro to Psych, Health Psych, or Biology classes, and was always slightly shaky, but now I actually understood it well for the first time. I overheard one girl in my class telling the professor that it was such a tough book to understand, but that wasn’t the case for me at all. Possibly because I had more of a bio background. But it seriously made difficult things like Action Potentials so much clearer.


He writes as if narrating or leading a classroom lecture, pointing out common confusions students have and how one should think about the topic. I have trouble getting my reading done, but it was pretty enjoyable with this book though yes, there is a lot of information in it Note, it doesn’t go crazy in-depth into bio I used this for a lower division class. Not to mention its beautiful hardcover.

This book has awesome illustrations. At first I was debating whether to rent or buy this book, but I decided it would probably be cool to keep it. I definitely recommend this book even if it is not for a class. It was definitely really easy to read and very easy to understand.

Biopsychology by John P.J. Pinel

Biopsyc courses can be difficult, but this book really saved my grade. Overall I thought it was a good read and would recommend to anyone interested in both psychology and biology. The price I paid for this book was reasonable. Thanks to this book I got a solid A. The text is informative, serves the biopshchology of the course. This is because Pearson requires some elusive “course P.j.;inel which my instructor knows nothing about; and Pearson’s solution to this was to send me images of the books they have that can be accessed without a course ID.

I am completely befuddled as to why, after purchasing a code for so much money, I cannot just access their site, enter the code and access the information needed. This is nothing short of criminal.


Not Amazon’s fault, but people who buy their books here need to know. While I agree with other reviewers that the text is good and the graphics in the text are outstanding, the CD that accompanies the book is a johnn waste of time.

Pinel has videotaped himself awkwardly addressing his imagined readers and foists these segments on the user at odd points throughout the CD. Each chapter contains a set of flash cards, a single multiple choice quiz, and a p.j.plnel of supplemental readings. The flash cards are of some use, the quiz doesn’t provide correct answers for missed questions and yields only a superficial evaluation of the student’s performance, and the list of readings is short three or four citations and without Web links.

Neither Pinel nor his editor seems biopsychopogy have any idea what content would actually be useful on a CD, e. I love how the author writes as though he’s having a conversation with p.j.pinell.

I was surprised to find so many jokes in a textbook. He has had me laughing jojn learning at each chapter. He clearly loves teaching biopsychology. I purchased this because there was no textbook bioopsychology our school library and the 9th edition which I have and love is just too expensive for me to buy for my classmates who either can’t afford the book or don’t have the means to order it. I hope you read the book if you get it.

It’s like Pinel has incorporated his spirit into the text. This and the 9th edition is honestly the best textbook I’ve ever had for any subject. His coloring p.j.pinl, “the anatomy of the human brain” is fantastic too. The material was practically the same as the new edition- just a couple of test questions that I could not answer in MyPsych Lab. Recommend purchasing this edition for students looking to save a buck!

The writing style is engaging p.j.pinel I particularly enjoyed the author’s personal anecdotes. The chapters are written in a straight forward format with clear and concise explanations- except for the chapter on visual systems.

The visual systems chapter was overwhelming, wordy, and difficult to understand. See all reviews. What other items do biopsycholofy buy after viewing this item? Biopsychology 9th Edition Hardcover.
