Psychological Science is the study of human behavior - how people grow and develop, how they think and learn.
Psychologists use scientific methods to understand learning, motivation, life-span development, personality, normal and abnormal behavior, group and social behavior, the physiological mechanisms of behavior, sensation and perception, and the application of psychological science in the workplace.
