Developmental psychologists study human growth throughout the lifespan, from conception to death. The scientific study of human development seeks to understand and explain how and why people change throughout life. This includes all aspects of human growth, including physical, emotional, intellectual, social, perceptual, and personality development.

In the developmental psychology study guide, you will find an overview of development, major theories, important figures, study questions, and quizzes about developmental psychology.
