Summary

General psychology presented by an award winning teacher, author and researcher. Substantially revised and increased emphasis on biological psychology, substantial updating, and a more rigorous presentation. Written with sensitivity to students' difficulties with challenging theories and principles. Demonstrations (mini-experiments) enable students to illustrate well-known studies or important principles; many are new to this edition. In-depth sections examine recent research on selected topics and emphasize research methodology. Stronger, more detailed biological emphasis, includes material on new developments in cognitive approaches. Substantial updating of research and examples throughout; includes over 1400 new references-more than 1000 from the 1990s. Incorporates DSM-IV framework. New colorful, open design.
