Revisiting the Classic Studies is a series of texts that introduces readers to the studies in psychology that changed the way we think about core topics in the discipline today. It provokes students to ask more interesting and challenging questions about the field by encouraging a deeper level of engagement both with the details of the studies themselves and with the nature of their contribution. Edited by leading scholars in their field and written by researchers at the cutting edge of these developments, the chapters in each text provide details of the original works and their theoretical and empirical impact, and then discuss the ways in which thinking and research has advanced in the years since the studies were conducted. Brain and Behaviour: Revisiting the Classic Studies traces 17 ground-breaking studies by researchers such as Gage, Luria, Sperry, and Tulving to re-examine and reflect on their findings and engage in a lively discussion of the subsequent work that they have inspired. Suitable for students on neuropsychology courses at all levels, as well as anyone with an enquiring mind.

About Author

Bryan Kolb is a native of Calgary, Canada and is currently a Professor in the Department Neuroscience at the University of Lethbridge, Canada, where he has been since 1976. He received his PhD from Pennsylvania State University in 1973 and did postdoctoral work at the U of Western Ontario and the Montreal Neurological Institute. His recent work has focused on the development of the prefrontal cortex and how neurons of the cerebral cortex change in response to various developmental factors including hormones, experience, stress, drugs, neurotrophins, and injury, and how these changes are related to behaviour. Bryan Kolb has published 5 books, including two textbooks with Ian Whishaw (Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology, 7th Edition; Introduction to Brain and Behavior, 5th Edition), and over 375 articles and chapters. Kolb is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He is currently a member of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research program in Child Brain Development. He and his wife train and show horses in Western riding performance events. Ian Whishaw received his PhD from Western University and is a Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Lethbridge. He has had visiting appointments at the University of Texas, University of Michigan, Cambridge University, and the University of Strasbourg. He is a fellow of Clare Hall Cambridge, The Canadian Psychological Association, The American Psychological Association, and the Royal Society of Canada. He is a recipient of the Canadian Humane Society Medal for bravery, the Speaker Medal for Research, The Alberta Science and Technology Leadership Award, the Donald O Hebb Prize from the Canadian Society for Brain Behavior and Cognitive Science, and the distinguished teaching medal from the University of Lethbridge. He has received the keys to the City of Lethbridge and honorary degrees from Thompson Rivers University and the University of Lethbridge. His research addresses the neural basis of skilled movement and the neural basis of brain disease. The Institute of Scientific Information includes him in its list of most cited neuroscientists and the most highly cited neuroscientist in Canada.
