Experimental psychology

Name: Experimental psychology
Description: Experimental psychologists regard psychology as a natural science; research is conducted with the help of experimental methods. The concern of experimental psychology is discovering the processes underlying behavior and cognition. Experimental psychology is a methodological approach rather than a subject and encompasses varied fields within psychology. Experimental psychologists have traditionally conducted research, published articles, and taught classes on neuroscience, developmental psychology, sensation, perception, attention, consciousness, learning, memory, thinking, and language. Recently, however, the experimental approach has extended to motivation, emotion, and social psychology. - definition adapted from Wikipedia
