From the Back Cover
Enter the fascinating world of the human brain and its amazing abilities with this colorful introduction to brain anatomy!
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.
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 beginning students, professionals and lay people alike.
A Colorful Introduction to the Anatomy of the Human Brain: A Braining and Psychology Coloring Book includes these innovations:
- Many of the brain structures that are introduced in this book are examined from two perspectives: structural and functional. Part 1 introduces, defines and illustrates the location of the major brain structures, while Part 2 describes their psychological functions and positions in functioning circuits.
- The illustrations and text are designed to introduce key concepts and major structures clearly and simply without unnecessary detail, focusing only on key neuroanatomical concepts and structures.
- A fold-over cover flap attached to the back cover can be used to cover illustration labels on the pages in the book for review and self-testing.
- Each chapter ends with a series of review exercises that help you test your progress in four ways
- Each learning unit appears in a consistent two-page format to facilitate acquisition.
About the Author
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.

1. I have never taken a class involving neuroscience of any kind, and I knew that these concepts would be difficult for me to fully understand. This workbook broke down the parts of the human nervous system in a way that made it simple and straightforward.
2. I found it exceedingly comforting and relaxing to simply color. I enjoyed choosing what colors to use, shading in the appropriate shapes, while simultaneously learning. This subject matter can be intimidating for some, and stressful for others, and the act of coloring removes some of these boundaries.
The workbook also acts as a study guide...there is a back flap that is designed to cover over the names of the structures, and you can go back and test yourself without peeking. The facing page of each coloring diagram includes a brief overview of the specific elements you are coloring and how they relate to one another. These descriptions are very brief summaries which provide a good reinforcement of what you learned from whatever textbook you are using (assuming you are in a class on biopsychology, neuropsychology, or a biology class about the nervous system).
I would recommend this book to anyone who feels that they need some extra help in understanding the complex structures of the human nervous system.
I like to color the pages lightly the first time then each time I go back I color it darker. This helps me to memorize all the parts.
