The scientific study of behavior and mental processes


Why do we dream? Can intelligence be increased? Which treatments for anxiety are most effective? How can negative stereotypes be changed? Why is it more difficult for adults to learn a new language? What makes the sexual nature of humans unique in the animal world?

These are just a few of the many issues addressed in psychology, a science that explores the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and environmental basis of both normal and abnormal behavior.
