    Introduction to Biological Psychology is aimed at undergraduate students. This first edition specifically targets students enrolled in Psychology at the University of Sussex, and primarily contains topics covered in the mandatory module Introduction to Biological Psychology. Future editions will continue to expand the number of topics and concepts presented.

    Following the principles of active learning, multiple means of representation will be provided for students to engage with the content. Clear, accessible text will be divided into short, easily digestible chapters that focus on one concept. Numerous images will be paired with the text. The text is written with the undergraduate student that is new to psychology in mind. Psychology terminology will be introduced in an easy-to-understand manner, and supporting content will be clear and concise to minimise cognitive load associated with understanding new material.
