Do you think it is necessary for a person in your field
of study to learn psychology and neuroscience? Explain your answer.

  • psychology -

    This question is directed at you in your field of study. My field is engineering and neither of these subjects were required to graduate.

    In later life, these subjects may provide some benefit in dealing with mental health and neurological disorders or dementia in oneself or family members.

  • psychology -

    If you are in a field where you have to deal with people, basic psychology will be helpful. It can help you understand the behavior of others and yourself. As examples, look at the 400+ articles available on my web site:

    However, neuroscience would probably be more helpful in medical or related fields.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
