Published by Sinauer Associates, an imprint of Oxford University Press. The Mind's Machine, introduced in 2012, was written to impart the core concepts of behavioral neuroscience to students in a diverse range of disciplines, including not only psychology and the other life sciences, but art, philosophy, media studies, linguistics, and the like. Through the use of streamlined text, full-color art, novel pedagogical features, and real-life examples and analogies, the book succeeded in engaging students new to neuroscience without sacrificing accuracy.
Put to the test by faculty and students, The Mind's Machine proved itself to be accessible and reader-friendly-not to mention affordably priced-and the Second Edition is no less so. If you are teaching a brain and behavior, biopsychology, or physiological psychology course, you will want to consider this book!
