Brain and Behavior: A Cognitive Neuroscience Perspective captures the excitement of cognitive and behavioral neuroscience by focusing on fundamental scientific principles, patterns, and ways of thinking.

Brain and Behavior is clear and vibrant writing, with fascinating real-life examples and applications that help to emphasize the dynamically changing nature of the brain. This text covers a wide territory critical for understanding the brain, from the basics of the nervous system to the sensory and motor systems, sleep, language, memory, emotions and motivation, social cognition, and brain disorders. Throughout the narrative, the authors emphasize the dynamically changing nature of the brain, through the mechanisms of neuroplasticity. The text pulls together the best current knowledge about the brain while acknowledging current areas of ignorance and pointing students toward the most promising directions for future research.
