General

Psychology is an academic and applied discipline involving the systematic, and often scientific, study of mental functions and behavior. Psychology is a scientific approach to the study of behavior and mental processes. Traditionally, psychologists seek to explain and understand behavior in terms of the workings of the nervous system, the interaction of genetic and environmental influences (nature v. nuture), the ways we sense and mentally represent the world, the roles of learning and motivation, and the nature of personality and social interaction.

Psychological knowledge is applied to various spheres of activity, including issues related to everyday lifeósuch as family, education and employmentóand to the treatment of mental health problems. Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the underlying physiological and neurological processes.
