Psychology and Computers

Some people see computers and psychology as two distinct fields with little in common. The general consensus is that computer science is a field that has an enviable research culture while psychology is based on qualitative studies of human behavior and perception.

However, a lot of modern computer science is inspired by psychological factors. Psychologists and computer scientists work closely together to design technology interfaces. This covers everything from dashboards for cars to cockpits as well as computer operating systems and game controllers. Likewise, a huge amount of psychological research is heavily statistical and requires sophisticated software to process huge data sets.

Psychologists are increasingly relying on technology to broaden their reach. While the traditional methods of experimentation of psychology – examining the behavior of a specific individual in a controlled setting, or assessing broader behavior patterns using self-report questionnaires and interviews – suffer from inherent limitations (experiments are limited to one experiment; longitudinal research is rare due to the difficulty of analyzing and collecting massive amounts of data).

Computer technology has provided new ways of understanding people’s behavior. Computers are vital to the brain-imaging technology known as fMRI. The technology enables researchers to match specific parts of the brain with specific cognitive processes, for example, reading or memory. EEG (electroencephalography) is another example of a technology that uses computer processing to record and analyze brain activity.

The CCBT approach is now recognized by the UK’s National Health Service as an effective treatment for moderate to mild depression and anxiety. Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to transform the practice of psychotherapy by replacing therapy professionals with robots that assess and treat patients online.
