Editorial Reviews

?In living up to a claim to provide a 'new perspective on human nature, ' Robinson summarizes some of the research on individual differences, especially attempts that have been made to assess the link between the anatomy and physiology of the brain with demonstrable differences....There is no doubt that this work will facilitate much needed debate on the complex quality of human nature. The discussions of human brain structures as they relate to pathology are especially interesting. It is intriguing to consider how the interaction between the evolutionary 'newer' and 'older' parts of the human brain may explain such things as biased information processing. Recommended to researchers/faculty serious about analyzing the physiological-psychological roots of human nature.?-Choice
