Psychology Level 7 with Maynooth University 2021/22

Psychology is commonly defined as the ” Scientific study of behaviour and cognitive processes”. How does the mind and body work together?


Why do we think, feel and act the way we do? Psychology explores these issues, and more, it looks into the underlying story behind the story!
