Developmental psychology is the branch of psychological science that studies the qualitative and quantitative changes individuals undergo as they traverse the life span. Developmental psychologists attempt to measure, explain and predict these changes from conception through the aging process in the areas of biological, social, emotional and cognitive growth. Developmental psychologists use experimental methods to describe changing behavior and clinical methods to treat problem behaviors.
