Publisher Description

This hands-on workbook provides and easy and enjoyable means of learning and reviewing the fundamentals of human neuroanatomy through the acclaimed directed-coloring method. Because the text deals with only key concepts and progresses in small, logical, easy-to-learn increments, it is ideal for the nonexpert-students, professionals and lay people alike.

There are other introductions to human brain anatomy, but this is a book with a difference. A Colorful Introduction to the Anatomy of the Human Brain: A Brain and Psychology Coloring Book was written by John Pinel and illustrated by Maggie Edwards, a team renowned for their ability to engage and fascinate the reader with their simple, cutting edge portrayals of the body's most complex organ and its psychological functions.

Author Biography

John Pinel, the author of Biopsychology, obtained his PhD from McGill University in Montreal. He worked briefly at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before taking up his current position at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Professor Pinel is an award-winning teacher and the author of over 200 scientific papers; however, he feels that Biopsychology is his major career-related accomplishment. "It ties together everything that I love about my job: students, teaching, writing, and research."

When asked about his personal interests, Professor Pinel speaks glowingly of his partner, Maggie, and son, Greg. The high quality of the illustrations in Biopsychology is largely attributable to the effort and talents of Maggie, who is an artist and technical writer. Greg is currently completing his PhD at the London School of Economics, specializing in social and educational programs for indigenous peoples.

"I get most of my exercise by rehearsing and performing West African drum rhythms," Professor Pinel says. "For a peak mental and physical experience, a bit of Kpanlogo with my friend, Nigerian drum master Kwasi Iruoje is hard to beat." Most of Professor Pinel's relaxation comes from cuddling his cats, Sambala, Rastaman, and Squeak.
