About the book:

Gray guides students into the "why" and "how" of behaviour as well as the "what". He encourages them not to be content with descriptions of behaviour, but to look for its purposes and the biological mechanisms that underlie it. He shows them how to be sceptical - to question the evidence, the interpretations and the logic behind the conclusions. "Focus questions" in the margins encourage the reader to follow developing arguments, anticipate findings and consider the impact of specific research and ideas on the issue in question. "Concluding Thoughts" emphasize connections between topics and offer students a fresh perspective for thinking about what they learned. "Looking Ahead" sections connect theories, themes and approaches just covered with those to come in the next chapter. This second edition features the new studies and developments that contribute to our understanding or that add a new dimension to what we thought we understood. Throughout the new edition there is even greater emphasis on the role of culture in psychological processes, zoological comparisons and their evolutionary implications, and the functions and ecology of behaviour.
