1.0 Psychology: "The scientific study of behavior and mental processes."
1.1 Behavior is anything an organism does - any action we can observe and record.
1.2 Mental Processes are the internal subjective experiences we infer from behavior - sensations, perceptions, dreams, thoughts, beliefs and feelings.
2.0 Psychology's Three Main Levels of Analysis:
2.1 Each of us is a complex system that is part of a larger social system, but each of us is also composed of smaller systems, such as our nervous system and body organs, which are composed of still smaller systems - cells, molecules and atoms.
Together, different levels of analysis form an integrated biopsychosocial approach, which considers the influences of biological, psychological and social-cultural factors. Each level provides a valuable vantage point for looking at behavior, yet each is incomplete.
Like different academic disciplines, psychology's varied perspective ask different questions and have their own limits."
