Product Overview

Animals often exhibit intriguing and captivating patterns of behavior, from migration and homing, to communication. But how is this behavior controlled? Behavioral Neurobiology introduces the fascinating field of neuroethology---the study of the neurobiological processes underlying animal behavior. Written in a lively, easy-to-read style, it examines the key concepts and ideas which underpin this intricate and elegant subject, and describes many of the groundbreaking discoveries that have helped us to unravel the mechanisms behind the behaviors we observe.

Beginning with a look at the history of the study of behavior, from Aristotle to recent breakthroughs and predictions for the future, the book then reviews the ethological and neurobiological concepts that constitute the essential tools of behavioral neurobiology, before moving on to the field of neuroethology itself.'A useful addition to your bookshelf. Zupanc's book can be used alone or as a supplement just to provide the fun examples of how the nervous system regulates behavior.'

Janine M. Wooton, The Journal of Undergraduate Neuroscience Education

`This book successfully fills the demand for a current neuroethology combination with the material on the supplemental web site, will prove invaluable to instrctors teaching this emerging field.'

Shaun D. Cain, The Journal of Experimental Biology
