Experimental Psychology

Experimental Psychology is a branch of psychology focused on using experimental and empirical methods to research behaviors and the minds of humans and animals. Components of experimental psychology are used in most fields of psychology through research but experimental psychologists are solely focused on research designs and methodologies. The scientific method is a main tenet and are used as guidelines for experimental psychologists to design their research studies. Using previous research as a framework for future research is an integral part of building knowledge in any field and is important for the emergence of new theories.
