Psychology is a science devoted to the study of how people and animals think, feel, and behave. Psychologists consider how biological processes and environmental influences impact behavior. The field of psychology integrates research and practice; that is, in addition to trying to explain behavior, psychologists are interested in applying the results of research to solve real-world problems.
