Health Neuroscience is a new interdisciplinary field encompassing research from cognitive, affective, and social neuroscience, health psychology, physical and mental health, and science of behavior change. This new field addresses the longstanding gap among neuroscience, health, and behavior change within the context of health promotion.

Fundamentals of Health Neuroscience explores key topics and research, including basic principles, psychological and neural processes, brain and body interactions, and gene x brain x environment interactions. This book also covers brain-based precision prevention and intervention strategies for health decisions and promotion across the lifespan. Chapters integrate the latest research findings and explores several key topics, such as: How does the brain serve both as a predictor and an outcome of health? How can people improve self-control and achieve physical and mental health effectively? What does brain plasticity and resilience tell us about optimal learning, performance, and development throughout our life? How is the sense of meaning in life affected by dopamine and reward systems in the brain?
