DISCOVERING PSYCHOLOGY, 26 half-hour television programs covers the fundamental principles and major concepts of psychology including: brain and behavior, sensation and perception, conditioning and learning, cognitive processes, motivation and emotion, life-span development, the self and identity, sex and gender, testing and intelligence, social influences, psychopathology and therapy, stress and health issues, methodology, and new directions. The host for the video programs is Philip Zimbardo, who has taught introductory psychology for more than 30 years.
