Dr. James W. Kalat’s Biological Psychology 12th Edition (PDF) is the most widely used textbook in the course area, and for good reason: an extremely high level of scholarship, a clear and occasionally humorous writing style, and very precise examples. Throughout all 11 previous editions, Dr. Kalat’s goal has been to make biological psychology accessible to psychology students, not just to pre-meds and biology majors. Another goal has been to convey the excitement of the search for biological explanations of behavior, and James Kalat delivers. Updated with new examples, topics and recent research findings, the latest new 12th edition continues this ebook’s tradition of quality.
