About The Author

Neil V. Watson

Neil V. Watson

Dr. Neil V. Watson's work on topics ranging from the neural control of reproductive behavior to the effects of steroids on cell survival to human cognitive sex differences has appeared in a variety of journals, including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, and Brain Research and Journal of Neuroscience.

Dr. Watson and the members of his lab at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada study sex-related aspects of the function and structure of the nervous system, with ongoing grant support from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. He got his undergraduate and master's degrees from the University of Western Ontario and his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California, Berkeley, Neil joined the faculty at SFU in 1996 where he is now Professor of Neuroscience in the Department of Psychology. He teaches biological psychology to hundreds of graduate and undergraduate students every year.

Behavioral Neuroscience, 8th Edition, (PDF) provides undergraduates with a lively survey of the field. It provides a broad perspective, lucid descriptions of behavior, encompassing cutting-edge neuroscience, evolutionary and developmental perspectives, and clinical applications of research. Irrespective of this comprehensive range of material, the authors have striven in the latest revision to lay bare the neuroscience concepts underlying behavior with clarity and concision.

Special Features of the 8th edition:

– The textbook is supported by a rich array of internet-based resources.

– Over 500 new citations keep the textbook current and an excellent resource.

– Every chapter includes a special feature called “The Cutting Edge” that emphasizes an up-to-the-moment discovery or technical innovation while illustrating the logic and methodology of experimentation and hypothesis testing

– Each chapter ends with a special feature, the “Visual Summary,” a poster-like layout that provides a graphical review of the major topics of the chapter and guides students to the figures and online animations that reinforce each point.

– Learning is supported by a best-in-class full-color art program, including many original illustrations that make it easy to understand structures, mechanisms, and processes in the brain. Many additional graphical elements have been reproduced from primary research sources, bringing the learner closer to the science behind the subject matter.

Thorough and reader-friendly, Breedlove & Watson’s Behavioral Neuroscience, 8th Edition, discloses the intriguing relationships between the brain and behavior.
