    Conrado's Bio:
    Born and raised in urban Madrid, lived in rural northern California and ended up in snowy suburban Minnesota. During the school year you'll find me firmly entrenched in a routine designed to develop my Psychology research skills, and during the summer you will probably not find me at all; in my free time, I enjoy going on trekking trips in the backcountry, adventuring through recondite countries and most importantly spending time with my family.

The Biological Perspective

Psychology is a social science. To most people, this translates into a ‘soft science’. And I can’t blame them, it is indeed difficult to establish strictly measurable criteria in psychology. But this is not to say that psychology can’t accomplish this. In fact, psychology is accomplishing this through neuroscience, computational modeling,  biology, and vigorous empirical testing of psychological frameworks. In this last regard, it is quite useful to have a biology minor. Learning about the biological frameworks explaining the natural world has made me see that the same way biology is nothing without chemistry, and chemistry is nothing without physics, psychology is nothing without biology. So informing psychology with biological phenomena is not only useful, but necessary.
