The Biopsychology Colouring Book

Suzanne Higgs

Learn and revise Biopsychology - through colouring!

Getting to grips with the basics of Biological Psychology has never been so easy. This book covers everything you need to know: from the structure of the nervous system to how our brain and body working together impacts our behaviour. New exercises have also been added to this Second Edition to cover the effects of drugs on neurotransmission, memory, mechanisms of nutrient monitoring and more.

Actively learn by:

- Revising key content using the short introductions

- Completing labelling exercises to test your knowledge

- Colouring in each diagram to help your brain make deep learning connections

Perfect for revision, this book provides a fun and relaxing break from screens while building your understanding of Biological Psychology.

About the Author

Cooper, Alison: -

Dr Alison Cooper's interest in Neuroscience began during her Natural Sciences degree when she accidentally found herself studying the properties of neurones that form the circuit that controls grasshopper movement. She pursued an interest in understanding how the activity of neuronal cells could underpin behaviour for her PhD by researching the properties and functions of the parts of the brain that contribute to human motor behaviour. During this time, she became interested in neuropharmacology, and the link between synaptic neurotransmission and human function/ dysfunction has remained the focus of her thoughts. Following various Postdoctoral positions, she took an ever-greater role in Neuroscience education of undergraduates in various professional and non-professional undergraduate programmes. In recent years she has used her experience to extend her interest in education to the public who want to understand their own or others' brains through public engagement in person and, globally, through online courses.

Lee, Jonathan: -

Professor Jonathan Lee has a degree in Natural Sciences, specialising in Neuroscience, from the University of Cambridge. He has always been interested in the value of studying biological mechanisms in order to understand behaviour. This interest has been particularly focused on unconscious memories and their impact on behaviour. In his PhD and Postdoctoral research, also at the University of Cambridge, he studied the contribution of gene expression and pharmacological mechanisms in the processes underlying long-term fear and addictive drug memories. He has continued these research interests since moving to the University of Birmingham, using his research experience to teach an introduction to Biological Psychology in the BSc Psychology programme.

Higgs, Suzanne: -

Professor Suzanne Higgs has a degree in Psychology, Philosophy and Physiology from the Univer-sity of Oxford, UK. During her degree she became fascinated by the effects of drugs on the brain and behaviour, which motivated her to pursue a PhD in Psychopharmacology at the University of Durham. After her PhD, she worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford before moving to the University of Birmingham, UK to take up a faculty position in the School of Psychology. She has taught at all levels on the BSc in Psychology programme at Birmingham and has over 20 years of lecturing experience. She specialises in teaching psychopharmacology and the biological bases of motivated behaviours, in particular, the psychobiology of appetite, which is the topic of her research.
