Behavioral science attempts to study the behaviour of an organism on the basis of systematic, rational, demonstrable-cause-effect-relationship. It incorporates many disciplines and assists in understanding of human behaviour in relation to a number of factors. The study of human development through behavioural science is essential to investigate the decision processes and communication stratagies within and between organisms in a social system. The understanding of cognition, emotion, motivation, and similar behavioral processes leads to the deep roots of human personality development.

This volume provides a comprehensive collection of researches in the field of behvioral science which covers all the aspects of human development. It is of great interest to all the psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists and cognitive scientists who are involved in the different spheres of human development.
