Much of psychological research does not attempt to solve a particular problem or look at how people behave in a real-life situation. Nevertheless, that sort of research still has implications for people's lives. Students learn about this material in classes, but in much greater detail than the public needs or wants. Thus, this category is for those sites that attempt to educate the public about the implications of basic psychological research.
