Psychology, the science concerned with behavior and mental processing, is a broad discipline, essentially spanning subject matter from biology to sociology. It covers the intersection of two critical relationships: one between brain function (biology) and behavior, and one between the environment (sociology) and behavior. Psychology is concerned with the study of human and nonhuman animal behavior and mental processing. While the individual is usually the focal point (as in personality, developmental, clinical and therapy areas) the influence of group behavior on the individual is also considered. Psychology involves both pure science and practical application to everyday living.The field of psychology follows scientific methods, using careful observation, experimentation, and analysis that results in scientific findings of natural and social science.
