Psychology is the scientific study of the brain and human behaviour. It helps explain how we think, feel and act both individually and as part of a social group.
Psychology is a broad discipline that covers a number of topics such as memory, mental illness, criminal behaviour and social relationships.
The study of psychology is based on scientific research principles including experiments, interviews, case studies and observations. Results from these studies are analysed using statistical techniques and in-depth qualitative procedures to explain or predict behaviour.
