Introduction of Studies Psychology

Psychology

Studying the scientific mechanisms of the mind.

Psychology is scientific study for explaining the mechanisms of the human mind. As an example, when people in their daily lives feel down and experience symptoms such as a loss of appetite, if they go for a hike up a mountain they feel refreshed. Psychology involves thinking about the mutual effects the mind and body, and the individual and their environment have on one another. The resulting human mindset and behavior is then scientifically researched. Psychology is divided into many smaller fields according to the objectives and targets of research. There are many applications of psychology in the field, including social psychology (the research of social behavior of groups and members of those groups), clinical psychology (research for counseling and psychiatric treatment), and criminal psychology (the research of crime and the criminal mind). Research in collaboration with fields such as engineering and medicine has also progressed as new fields of study that aim to solve the new problems that are arising in our ever-changing society.
