Dictionary of Biological Psychology

Dictionary of Biological Psychology Lowest new price: $161.73
Lowest used price: $1.60
List price: $400.00

Biological Psychology is the study of psychological processes in terms of biological functions. A major obstacle to understanding dialogue in the field has always been its terminology which is drawn from a variety of non-psychological sources such as clinical medicine, psychiatry and neuroscience, as well as specialist areas of psychology such as ethology, learning theory and psychophysics. For the first time, a distinguished international team of contributors has now drawn these terms together and defined them both in terms of their physical properties and their behavioural significance.
The Dictionary of Biological Psychology will prove an invaluable source of reference for undergraduates in psychology wrestling with the fundamentals of brain physiology, anatomy and chemistry, as well as researchers and practitioners in the neurosciences, psychiatry and the professions allied to medicine. It is an essential resource both for teaching and for independent study, reliable for fact-checking and a solid starting point for wider exploration.


Where Biology Meets Psychology: Philosophical Essays

Where Biology Meets Psychology: Philosophical Essays Lowest new price: $12.63
Lowest used price: $8.75
List price: $87.50

A great deal of interest and excitement surround the interface between the philosophy of biology and the philosophy of psychology, yet the area is neither well defined nor well represented in mainstream philosophical publications. This book is perhaps the first to open a dialogue between the two disciplines. Its aim is to broaden the traditional subject matter of the philosophy of biology while informing the philosophy of psychology of relevant biological constraints and insights.The book is organized around six themes: functions and teleology, evolutionary psychology, innateness, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and parallels between philosophy of biology and philosophy of mind. Throughout, one finds overlapping areas of study, larger philosophical implications, and even larger conceptual ties. Woven through these connections are shared concerns about the status of semantics, scientific law, evolution and adaptation, and cognition in general.

The Psychobiology of Human Motivation (Psychology Focus)

The Psychobiology of Human Motivation (Psychology Focus) Lowest used price: $59.99
List price: $69.95
Author: Hugh Wagner

Why is one person motivated to create a business empire whilst another is inspired to produce a beautiful work of art? Why do some people prefer a quiet life?
The Psychobiology of Human Motivation explores what directs our behaviour, from basic physiological needs like hunger and thirst to more complex aspects of social behaviour like altruism. Hugh Wagner explores the limits of biological explanations and shows how humans can influence `basic' physiological drives in order to adapt to a complex social environment.

The Psychobiology of Aggression: Engines, Measurement, Control

The Psychobiology of Aggression: Engines, Measurement, Control Lowest new price: $42.18
Lowest used price: $2.60
List price: $51.95
Author: Marc Hillbrand
Brand: Brand: Routledge

In this extraordinarily comprehensive portrait of the present state of the psychobiology of aggression, you will find critical information on understanding and controlling this type of behavior. The authors, nationally and internationally distinguished researchers, present to the reader a critical overview of the principal areas of psychobiological research on aggression, which updates your current knowledge about the influence of biological variables on aggression. The contributors to The Psychobiology of Aggression also explore, as a secondary focus, the relevance of this topic to the field of criminal justice.

Subdivided into three sections--theoretical models, measurement, and treatment--this monograph begins to pave the way for your full understanding of the dynamics and control of aggression. The first section examines the link between aggression and sex and biological factors (testosterone, serotonin, alcohol, traumatic brain injury, hematology, and cerebral lateralization). The second reviews the measurement of brain dysfunction using neuroimaging techniques and various approaches to the measurement of aggression in children and adults using microbehavioral and psychometric methods. The third section reviews pharmacological approaches to the treatment of aggression (benzodiazepines, neuroleptics, beta-blockers, lithium, and anticonvulsants) and the link between diet and aggression.

In each chapter, the authors first present an historical review of their topic, critically review current research, outline (when appropriate) the relevance of their topic to the field of criminal justice, and make suggestions for future research.

For psychiatrists, The Psychobiology of Aggression provides specific guidelines for the psychopharmacological treatment of violent individuals, including choice of pharmacological agent, potential benefits, adverse side effects, etc. Correctional personnel benefit from the above topics and the detailed review of dietary factors in aggression control, with a special emphasis on incarcerated individuals. And for psychologists and researchers of other disciplines, it provides a current review of the major areas of psychobiological investigations related to aggression.
