"Questions about the biological basis of personality and the self are among the most important and least understood ones facing brain scientists and other biologists and psychologists. This volume provides an excellent, up-to-date survey of some of the key issues from a variety of perspectives. It will be a valuable resource for all who are interested in these topics."--Joseph LeDoux, PhD, Center for Neural Science, New York University

"This is an outstanding book on biological processes underlying some of the major dimensions of personality and individual differences. It will be of interest to graduate students and researchers alike. Current findings from diverse fields such as cognition, psychiatry, behavioral neuroscience, and comparative psychology address personality traits and processes, showing how far we have come and how far yet there is to go."--Paul T. Costa, Jr., PhD

"Individual differences have always been of fundamental concern to psychology, but until recently the neurological, biochemical, and genetic underpinnings of personality have been more a matter of speculation than research. Turhan Canli has gathered together as thoughtful a collection of scholars as one could imagine, and their research agenda will guide the field for decades. This is a fascinating read for personality and social psychologists who want to know more about the neurosciences, and for neuroscientists who want a better understanding of how their methods and paradigms can help us address that fundamental question in our field: What differentiates one person from another?"--Peter Salovey, PhD

Product Description
This is the first book to provide an overview of current research using cutting-edge genetic and neuroimaging methods in the study of personality. Integrating compelling lines of inquiry that until now have largely remained disparate, the volume brings together leading investigators from personality psychology; clinical psychology and psychiatry; cognitive, affective, and behavioral neuroscience; and comparative psychology. Coverage includes the structure of personality and its mapping onto biology, genetic markers for individual differences, vulnerability to psychopathology, sex differences, age-related processes, and functional neuroimaging approaches.
