"The first part of the book is concerned with foundations of behavioral neuroscience: the history of the field, the structure and functions of neurons, neuroanatomy, psychopharmacology, and research methods. The second part is concerned with inputs and outputs that guide behavior: the sensory systems and the motor system. The third part deals with classes of species-typical behavior: sleep, reproduction, emotional behavior, and ingestion. The chapter on reproductive behavior includes parental behavior as well as courting and mating. The chapter on emotion includes a discussion of fear, anger and aggression, communication of emotions, and feeling emotions. The chapter on ingestive behavior includes the neural and metabolic bases of drinking and eating. The fourth part of the book explores learning, including research on synaptic plasticity, the neural mechanisms that are responsible for perceptual learning and stimulus-response learning (including classical and operant conditioning), human amnesia, and the role of the hippocampal formation in relational learning. The final part of the book examines the neural basis of human communication as well as neurological, mental, and behavioral disorders. Behavioral disorders are addressed in four chapters; the first is a new chapter combining information about development of the nervous system with information about disorders of development, autism spectrum disorders, and attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder; the second discusses schizophrenia and the affective disorders; the third discusses stress and anxiety; and the fourth discusses substance abuse. Each chapter begins with a Case Study.
