Hello Popular Psychology Readers

By: , Posted on: October 26, 2015

I assume that you are reading this blog because you have an interest in psychology and that you read about psychology in the popular press. Do you read Psychology Today, Scientific American Mind, Scientific American, and/or Popular Science? If so, then you are probably interested in the answers to questions such as:

Warren Tryon, Blue Stone Barn at Rockefeller State Park

1. Will psychology and neuroscience come together as biology as chemistry did to create the field of biochemistry?
2. What happens to your brain when you form memories and learn?
3. Where do emotions come from?
4. What is the real connection between emotions and colors?
5. Why do effective psychotherapies work?
6. How does epigenetics differ from genetics and how is our behavior shaped by epigenetics?

If you are interested in the answers to any or all of these and related questions then you will want to get a copy of my book, Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychotherapy: Network Principles for a Unified Theory from the Elsevier store. It does not presume any prior background in psychology.

If you have read Eagleman’s Incognito: The secret lives of the brain and/or Gazzaniga’s Who’s in charge? Free will and the science of the brain to learn more about unconscious processing, then you will be interested in my book which covers this topic in greater detail.

If you have read LeDoux’s The emotional brain: The mysterious underpinnings of emotional life to learn more about where emotions come from and how they generate behavior, then you will be interested in my book which covers this topic in greater detail.

If you have read LeDoux’s Synaptic self: How our brains become who we are and/or Seung’s Connectome: How the brain’s wiring makes us who we are to learn more about how the brain operates and changes in response to experience to enable us to form memories, learn, and develop psychologically, then you will be interested in my book which covers this topic in greater detail.
