Note Editore

Behavioral Neuroscience is a relatively recent discipline which unifies different fields encompassing Cognitive Psychology, Cognitive Science, Clinical Neurology, Neuroanatomy, and Neurophysiology.

Encyclopedia of Behavioral Neuroscience is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary work written by the best experts in the field, addressing the relationship between the neurological and biological basis of behavior and models of cognition, spanning from perception to memory and covering phenomena that occur in human and other animals.

Published in 2010, it comprised 212 articles and was a unique and essential resource for students and professionals in several fields including neuroscience, psychology, neurology, psychiatry, and cognitive science. It was by far the most comprehensive reference work available addressing the advances in all the field of behavioral neuroscience. It does however, now need revising with the latest science.

The new edition will again cover the relationship between brain and behavior, both in humans and other animals, as well as mental and brain disorders. This new edition spans accross three volumes, 250 chapters and approximately 2000 pages. It will build on the foundations of the first edition by thoroughly updating all current articles with the latest research that has developed in the last decade. In addition, 40 brand new articles on the hottest topics within behavioral neuroscience will be added, covering areas such as advances in behavioral genetics and epigenetics, cognitive ageing, neuroepidemiology, social neuroscience, as well as the upsurge of new technologies like diffusion tensor imaging or transcranial direct current stimulation.

The result will be an all-encompassing one-stop interdisciplinary major reference work on how the brain and its disorders influence behavior, perfect for neuroscience students, clinicians and scientists interested in knowing more about behavior from a biological perspective.

  • Much-loved classic reference work fully revised with all the scientific advances of the last decade
  • Comprehensive and authoritative articles on all aspects of behavioural neuroscience
  • Offers readers a 'one-stop' resource for access to a wealth of information to fully support their research and activities in this area
  • Chapters written by leading experts in neuroscience across the globe, thus ensuring the knowledge within is easily understood by and applicable to a large audience
  • Articles intuitively and meticulously organized into 10 coherent sections on key topics, making it easier for the reader to access relevant information quickly
  • Lists of key references and further reading for each article means that related content will be easier to find, and latest/key research in the field will be highlighted
