Psychology and Psychiatry
Psychology has been depicted as a "hub science" in that medicine tends to draw mental research by means of neurology and psychiatry. Psychology attempts to understand the role human behaviour plays in social dynamics while incorporating physiological and neurological processes into its conceptions of mental functioning. Psychology includes many sub-fields of study and application concerned with such areas as human development, sports, health, industry, law, and spirituality.
Psychiatry is the medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of mental, emotional and behavioural disorders. Research and treatment inside psychiatry are directed on an interdisciplinary premise, e.g., with epidemiologists, mental health counsellors, nurses, psychologists, public health specialists, radiologists, and/or social workers. Psychiatry adopts a medical approach but may take in to account biological, psychological, and social/cultural perspectives. Treatment by medication or, less often, various forms of psychotherapy may be undertaken.
