Dr Khosla has written an excellent and comprehensive textbook on physiological psychology that integrates both Indian and Western research literatures. The text expertly guides both the beginner and specialist through the major subject areas of this immense field. The inclusion of self- assessment questions at the end of each chapter further enhances the value of this textbook for students. Dr Khosla has made a substantial and important contribution.
Dr Khosla’s remarkable book Physiological Psychology focuses on the fundamental physiological mechanisms that underlie the brain functions which mediate psychological processes. The material, placed in an appropriate historical context, is presented in a very readable manner, with summary and test material at the end of each chapter to help the student review and consolidate the information. I was especially pleased to see in the later chapters that Dr Khosla has highlighted the contribution of Indian psychologists to our discipline.
