Psychology is the science of behavior and mind. It includes the study of conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as feeling and thought. It is an academic discipline of immense scope. In clinical domains, psychologists generally assess, diagnose, and treat the psychological problems and behavioral dysfunctions resulting from, or related to, physical and mental health. In both clinical and non-clinical domains, psychologists work at the individual, small-group, or organizational levels providing a capability for assessment of performance and productivity. In a variety of organizations and institutions, consulting psychologists play a major role in promoting healthy behavior and wellness, preventing diseases, improving quality of life, and optimizing performance.

Throughout his extensive career, Dr. Myatt has authored and co-authored numerous peer-reviewed publications in journals such as the Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, Developmental Neuroscience, Journal of Special Operations Medicine, and Military Medicine.
