The science of the mind and action is psychology. The study of conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as emotions and thoughts, involves psychology. Psychologists aim to understand the evolving properties of the brain and all the range of phenomena associated with these emerging properties, joining the larger study community of neuroscientists in this way.
In individual and social behavior, psychologists strive to explain the role of mental functions while also investigating the physiological and biological mechanisms that underlie cognitive functions and behaviors.
