The study of brain-behavior relationships has clearly been the fastest-growing component of academic psychology and its relationship to the training of medical professionals. Consistent with this growth has been the proliferation of textbooks dedicated to providing information about this widening field to a variety of audiences—from undergraduates in the early stages of their academic career, to medical students taking formalized neuroscience courses, and finally to medical professionals who wish to have an encapsulated view of the field. Clearly, although a single book cannot be an effective tool to reach these 3 diverse and disparate audiences, the current edition of Biological Psychology makes a valiant attempt.
