Psychology is the study of why we think and behave the way that we do. If you studied psychology at university you might look at how things that happen to us when we are young influence how we think and act when we are older, how different chemicals and hormones in the brain effect behaviour and how some illnesses are linked to the brain, like depression, and how we can treat them. You might also look at famous psychologists and what they thought about psychology, and how we have come to view their ideas differently over time.
