Description: Psychology is the science that examines the structure and function of behaviour in humans and animals. It is concerned with the processes by which behaviour is acquired, maintained, and developed through adaptive interaction with the physical and social aspects of the environment. Emphasis is on the genetic, physiological, sensory, cognitive, personal development, and social structures that mediate behaviour.

Among the topics covered by Psychology courses are life-span developmental changes in behaviour, modes of sensing, perceiving and responding to the environment, learning and cognition, the origins and implications of drives, motives, conflicts and emotions, and the wide variety of individual and species differences that are produced by differences in genetic background, physiology and past experience.
