About this Unit
Psychology is a field of scientific inquiry that uses a set of scientific techniques and methods to explain and understand the causes of behaviour. This unit introduces students to the discipline of psychology through a focus on physiological basis of behaviour, memory, language and thought, sensation and perception, motivation, emotion, learning, and the research methods used to scientifically study behaviour. In this general introductory topic students explore how psychology, as a profession, applies its knowledge to practical problems in human behaviour and provides a foundation for more advanced units for students continuing to further studies.
