  • An attempt to expand our understanding of (psychological) phenomena, even if such knowledge does not necessarily lead directly to any practical benefits, thereby distinguishing itself from applied research. Scientists conducting basic research usually work for universities or government-funded agencies. Recently, distinctions between applied and basic research have become less clear-cut, in that many basic research findings often have practical utility and, likewise, applied research findings may have implications for our understanding of basic psychological processes. For more information, see Nihei and Miura (2002).
