About this book

Behavioral Neurobiology provides a novel treatment of the neural basis of behavior. The pedagogical premise of the book is that general insights into the neuronal organization of behavior can be gained by examining neural solutions that have evolved in animals to solve problems encountered in their particular environmental niches. The author presents in-depth "case studies" of individual animals from which themes clearly emerge, taking on additional meaning by being considered in a real-world behavioral context.
