"Learning is a vast and complex topic that cannot be easily defined, and biological descriptions of processes in learning are similarly complex - thus, this book generalizes on both counts and will likely feel/sound somewhat inaccurate or incomplete to many readers. Nonetheless, we can enrich our teaching with a better understanding of the biology of the brain"--Author.
