Psychology is a branch of science that deals with the study of human behavior. They use scientific methods to prove their theories. They use naturalistic observation to see what is the behavior of the subject in its natural state. They can also use correlational approach which relates everything that happens is connected. They connect the behavior of the subject through the things that happened to him years or days before his behavior change. Also the most use in science is experimental, they experiment on a subject to test what is his reaction to things that affects his behavior. Psychology is the study of behavior which is part of the brain, how can the naturalistic and correlational method provide evidence that the brain has been change when the behavior changed. Psychology is a branch of science that is why it should be studied In a systematize way.

Pavlov was studying digestion when he discovered classical conditioning
“ He simply observed the relationship between stimuli and response .”
“ He believed that our actions are controlled by rewards, or positive reinforces .”
“ He also believed that, misguarded rewards lead us into destructive actions and create problem such as over population, pollution, and war.”
Assumption of Behaviorist
They assume that our behavior can be control or learn
Research method of behaviorist
They use stimulus and response to check the behavior that we will react
Suppressing an undesirable response by associating it with painful or uncomfortable stimuli

Assumption of Biological Psychology
Humans are made up of millions of neuron that work for the behavior of a person.
Subject matter of biological psychology
Research method of Biological Psychology
They do experiment to know how the neurons will synapse and the reaction of the neurotransmitters that it emit.
They give medicine to the patient by knowing what neuron or part of the body they need to target
sociocultural perspective maintains that behavior and mental processes are shaped not only by prior learning experiences (the behavioral perspective) or intrapsychic forces (for instance, the unconscious) but also by the social or cultural context.
