Dr. Kevin Fleming has released a new article that highlights the relationship between psychology and neuroscience.
Tulsa, OK, Jul 25, 2019 /prREACH/ -- Neuroscience, the scientific study of the nervous system, is a distinct field that builds upon advances in computing, behavioral psychology and cellular biology. The relationship between traditional psychology and neuroscience are elucidated in a new article written by Dr. Kevin Fleming.

Dr. Fleming, the Founder of Grey Matters International, demonstrates how the history of the mind/body problem has made possible the different innovations that have led to current studies of the brain. Dr. Fleming believes that the findings of neuroscience can help solve some of the behavioral questions psychologists have been asking for centuries.
In the article, he writes, "Understanding how the brain works on a scientific level and utilizing neurotechnology, such as brainwave-based innovations that can exploit neuroplastic reactions with our neurophysiology, can help identify correlations between the brain and mental states. Neuroscience has created new and advanced ways for scientists to assess the biological processes that underpin behavior, which, in turn, enables professionals to make more informed decisions about psychological interventions and treatments."
Revolutions in computational science are allowing real-time analysis of brain activity. This activity can be used to understand exactly what is going on in the brains of people suffering from disorders. Behaviors designated by psychology can be matched with computer imaging.
The unresolved arguments about "mind over matter" do not stop the practical applications of neuroscience in psychology, Dr. Fleming believes. Cognitive science can inform the treatment of specific mental health disorders that have long puzzled experts.
The possible applications for the combination of neuroscience and psychology include insights into:
- Parkinson's Disease
- Clinical Depression
- Drug Abuse
"Neuroscience and psychology work together and challenge one another in equal measure, which promotes progress in both fields," says Dr. Fleming.
Dr. Fleming and Grey Matters International believe in the further application of cognitive neuroscience to diagnose and treat mental illnesses that affect the mind and the body. According to the article, research should focus less on the question of which field is more accurate and more on the ways that the diverse fields can inform each other.
Considering biology, psychology, and philosophy, this article points to the potential for innovation in a hybridized and growing field. Those interested in Dr. Fleming's work can visit the Grey Matters International official website.
