Beginning with a look at the history of the study of behavior--from Aristotle to recent breakthroughs and predictions for the future--the text then reviews the ethological and neurobiological concepts that constitute the basic tools of behavioral neurobiology before moving on to the field of neuroethology itself. Each chapter not only describes the major findings in a specific area, but also examines the experimental methods used to obtain these results and the researchers behind them.
Taking a comparative zoological approach, Behavioral Neurobiology, Second Edition, enables students to gain a thorough understanding of the essentials of the field without becoming overwhelmed by excessive details. The text is enhanced by detailed case studies, a wide range of examples, summaries of key points, biographical sketches of eminent researchers, exercises, and suggestions for further reading. A Companion Website offers additional resources for students and instructors.
