Psychology attempts to explain human behaviour and mental processes. From early times man has been seeking ways of explaining behaviour, through philosophy, religion and science.

It then goes on to show how the following programs will discuss different aspects of human behaviour such as sleep, memory, language, emotion and intellect in the light of these differing psychological approaches.
