The literal meaning of the term "psychology" is the study of the human mind. In modern times, the meaning of the term has evolved to also include the study of human behavior.

You might be asking, how are the two connected?

Awhile back, research psychologists decided that it was too difficult to study the brain directly with the instruments they had available to them. The brain is the most complicated thing in the known universe, and its parts are very small and difficult to study. While psychologists continue to study the brain directly today, more progress was made after deciding to focus on studying the brain indirectly, through behavior.
