Psychology in the 21st Century

This Open University unit is an adapted extract from the "Exploring Psychology" course.

The unit explains how different psychologists focus on different aspects of human behaviour in different ways. For example, in the field of learning, some psychologists study key brain regions involved in learning material, others consider learning within a social context. This unit explains how psychology is a visible part of everyday life before explaining its multifaceted nature and its overlaps with medicine, philosophy, biology, etc.
