AE Biological Psychology 13th Edition

Dr. James W. Kalat's BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY is the most widely used text in the course area, and for good reason: an extremely high level of scholarship, a clear writing style with amusing anecdotes, and precise examples. Throughout all editions, Kalat's goal has been to make biological psychology accessible to psychology students, not just to biology majors and pre-meds.
