It's difficult to believe that 2012 is nearly over! As the year draws to an end, it is time once again to look back at the year that was. In addition to adding lots of new resources and articles for all of our readers, we've also covered a number of news stories on some of the latest research and findings in the wide world of psychology.

Researchers discovered that John B. Watson misrepresented his well-known Little Albert experiment, one survey revealed that psychology is one of the most popular online degrees, and sports psychologists played an important role at the Summer Olympics in London.

Before we move on to a new year, let's take a look back at some of the psychology news from 2012.

Psychology plays an important role in everything we do really. It has a great impact on marketing, industrial design, relationships, and even your physical health.

I always liked my psychology classes, and it’s cool that you can take them online. However, I ended up going for a robotics engineering degree – not something you can take online…

I did also get a BBA in management and found that psychology was a big factor in all of my marketing classes.

Anyways, thanks Kendra.
