Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and behaviour, it is about ‘what’ the mind does, how the brain functions, and how we process, organise, and store information known as stimuli in the brain. Psychology is classed as a science because whilst we cannot see inside the brain, without the use of scanners, we can objectively observe and measure the way the mind works by studying human behaviour. In experiments we monitor people’s responses to tasks, such as reasoning, calculating, recognition, word association, and memory, and from the scores or results, we can gain an idea of how people’s brains function and how their minds really work.
