Introduction to CyberPsychology
As a discipline, CyberPsychology is concerned with the impact of emerging technologies on human behaviour.
CyberPsychologists study human interactions with the Internet, social media, mobile technologies, games consoles, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and any other technology that has the potential to shape human behaviour. The field is rapidly evolving into an established field within applied psychology. Researchers from all branches of psychology are currently interested in cyberspace, including cognitive, social, educational, organisational, clinical and experimental psychologists.
