definition of psychology
Definition of psychology
  • Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior. The discipline embraces all aspects of the human experience — from the functions of the brain to the actions of nations, from child development to care for the aged. In every conceivable setting from scientific research centers to mental health care services, "the understanding of behavior" is the enterprise of psychologists. -The American Psychological Association

James C. Ha, Ph.D.Primate Development, Behavior, & Reproduction; Corvid (Crow) Social Foraging; Orca Social Behavior
  • “My research interests are in social behavior of highly cognitive animals. I have ongoing research efforts in two areas: 1) primate development, behavior, and reproduction, and 2) behavioral ecology and foraging behavior of corvids(crows). In addition, I have recently developed a new research program in orca social organization. . . My crow research. . . is examining the foraging ecology of Northwestern crows, and the use of tidal flats as a desirable, renewable, but only intermittently available food resource. We have been involved in extensive field work, including banding and behavioral observations. In addition, we have developed the microsatellite DNA markers that will ultimately allow us to determine kinship amongst our subjects.”

Marsha Linehan, Ph.D.Behavioral Assessment & Therapy, Suicide & Parasuicide, Borderline Personality Disorders, Drug Abuse, Behavior Therapy With Women

  • “Her primary research is in the application of behavioral models to suicidal behaviors, drug abuse, and borderline personality disorder. She is also working to develop effective models for transferring efficacious treatments from the research academy to the clinical community.”
  • Comtois, K.A., Linehan, M.M. (2006) Psychosocial Treatments of Suicidal Behaviors: A Practice-Friendly Review. Journal of Clinical Psychology: In Session, 62 (2) 161-170

Sean O'Donnell, Ph.D.Neural, Physiological, and Genotypic Effects on Social Organization & Division of Labor Insects, Evolution of Social Behavior, Tropical Community Ecology

  • “My research program integrates field work with studies of physiology and genetics, aimed at understanding the behavioral ecology of highly social animals. My work focuses on eusocial insects, particularly paper wasps (Hymenoptera: Vespidae), ants (Formicidae) and bees (Apidae). . . I conduct detailed behavioral observations of individually marked animals in the field. I have experimentally manipulated environmental and physiological factors that contribute to behavioral variation, and estimated genetic contributions to division of labor.”

Scott Murray Visual Perception, Attention, Functional Neuroimaging
  • My research seeks to understand the brain mechanisms of visual and cognitive processes by combining behavioral and functional imaging (fMRI) measurements of neural activity. Topics under investigation include object recognition, visual attention, and perceptual grouping.

betty repacholi ph d social cognitive and emotional development during infancy and early childhood
Betty Repacholi, Ph.D.Social-cognitive and emotional development during infancy and early childhood
  • “Much of my research is concerned with infants' responses to other people's emotional signals and determining what they understand about these communications. In addition, I have research interests in the relationship between theory of mind and children's social functioning; the effects of early social experience (e.g., attachment) on children's social-cognitive and emotional development; and the ontogeny of human disgust responses.”

tests and measures
Tests and Measures
  • Measurement tools
    • Instruments used by researchers and practitioners to aid in the assessment or evaluation of subjects, clients or patients. The instruments are used to measure or collect data on a variety of variables ranging from physical functioning to psychosocial wellbeing. Types of measurement tools include scales, indexes, surveys, interviews, and informal observations.
