There is a big difference between theories and laws. The term scientific law can have a few meanings to it. One could be , an empirical generalization; a statement of biological principle that appears to be without exception at the time it is made, and has become adapted by repeated testings that come out the same and correctly (Lincoln et al.,19190). Another definition could be, a statement based on repeated experimental observations that describes some aspects of the universe. In simple terms , a law describes what nature does under certain conditions, and will predict what will happen as long as those conditions are met.

Fundamentals of Research Methodology PSYCH/540 July 29, 2013 Dr. Kimberly Wilkins Abstract The content of this paper will discuss a field of concepts pertaining to fundamental research in methodology, and provide a discussion in the important factors concerning the psychology of science research. The contents of this paper will contain an explanation and definition of scientific method along the method steps. A discussion in this paper will cover qualitative and quantitative data, and the testing, and construction of the scientific construct theory. Fundamentals of Research Methodology The science of behavior, and the mind is known as psychology and variables factors of the effects of behavior and mind from internal and external
Biological psychology is based on the psychological and neurological factors of what the brain is containing. Figuring out a certain brain reason for its behaviors either it me normal or mentally challenged, also known as a chemical imbalance in the brain for a person not to function correctly like a normal brain would. The studies that play in to this is behavioral, genetics and much more. 2. What is the historical development of biological psychology?

Social neuroscience is a field that focuses on how biological methods and concepts refine theories of social behavior and processes. Studying the nervous system is another way to study the mind and body and how they relate. Physiological psychology uses surgical methods to better understand the mind and body issue. All fields of psychology work together to communicate findings and better understand the human body and
Once one realizes that psychology is a branch of biology, inferential tools developed in biology -- its theories, principles, and observations -- can be used to understand psychology. Here are five basic principles -- all drawn from biology -- that EPs apply in their attempts to understand the design of the human mind. The Five Principles can be applied to any topic in psychology. They organize observations in a way that allows one to see connections between areas as seemingly diverse as vision, reasoning, and sexuality. Principle 1.
Physical Science Introduction to Scientific Inquiry Background Scientific inquiry is a process scientists use to study the natural world in order to answer questions or solve problems. It consists of several steps including asking questions, conducting research, forming hypotheses, conducting experiments, collecting and analyzing data, drawing conclusions, and communicating experimental results to others. In today’s activity, you will follow some steps of the scientific inquiry process as you investigate a natural phenomenon known as Charles’ Law. Introduction 1.
