About this eBook

PREFACE Dear readers, It gives me immense pleasure in putting forth this book before you. To succeed in any examination it is essential that the basics of the subject be very clear. This book has been written keeping this fact in mind. This is not a text book but a consolidated text for quick review of basic facts written within the framework of the UGC-NET syllabus for the second paper of psychology. At the end of each chapter questions have been given for helping you to test out your knowledge. These questions are framed as per the pattern of the exam and have been taken from various standard question banks. A scoring key is provided for your ready reference. In the end a detailed glossary has been given to enable the readers to grasp important concepts at one glance. The glossary covers more than the topics given in this book as many concepts are interrelated and must be also known to understand things in totality. I have tried my best to provide as much matter as possible in condensed form, however, it is not possible to be perfect in all regards. There may be things that have been omitted, though not intentionally. This book has been written and personally typeset by me on my personal computer to reduce the probability of typing errors, however, some errors may still have occurred. I request the readers to kindly point them out to me for corrections in further editions. In the unit on Biological basis of behavior the term adjuster mechanism is very vague. I consulted many senior professors of various universities and also the internet but could not come to any definite conclusion regarding it. To the best of my knowledge as well as of senior professors it refers to homeostasis. It thus has been discussed as such. The readers are advised to clear the same from the UGC. I would like to express thanks to the publishers for having faith in my abilities and giving me this assignment. I also express thanks to Ms. Arti Jain for helping me compile the questions from various question banks. Finally I dedicated this book to my wife Dr. Lisy and loving daughter Swarnim who are the constant source of my motivation. Dr. Amit Abraham
