"Psychology is the study of the nature, functions, and phenomena of behaviour and mental experience. The etymology of the word implies that it is simply the study of the mind, but much of modern psychology focuses on behaviour rather than the mind, and some aspects of psychology have little to do with the mind."

Excerpted from Psychology. In: A Dictionary of Psychology. Edited by Andrew M. Colman. Oxford University Press 2009.
