What is Psychology?
Studying the mind and behavior.
Psychology is a science based on a large body of social and behavioral research that is expanding its boundaries to overlap with neuroscience and health science. Psychologists study two critical relationships: one between brain function and behavior and one between the environment and behavior.
As scientists, psychologists follow scientific methods, using careful observation, experimentation, and analysis to learn more about the world in which we live and its inhabitants.
