An extremely simplified explanation of the difference between physiological and psychological, would be that physiological is physical and tends to deal with the body and our physical responses and psychological is mental and usually deals with our thought processes and the way the brain works. Physiological psychology is sometimes known as cognitive neuroscience and focuses on the branch of biology dealing with the functions and activities of living organisms and their parts, including all physical and chemical processes. A physiological reaction would often refer to how the body physically reacts to something such as a drug. It is the function of living systems and includes how organisms, organ systems, organs, cells and bio molecules carry out the chemical or physical functions that exist in a living system. Physiology is a scientific study of an organism’s vital functions, including growth and development, the absorption and processing of nutrients, the synthesis and distribution of proteins and other organic molecules, and the functioning of different tissues, organs, and other anatomic structures. Physiology studies the normal mechanical, physical, and biochemical processes of animals and plants.

Psychological knowledge is often applied to the assessment and treatment of mental health problems, it is also applied to understanding and solving problems in many different spheres of human activity.

Psychoanalysis was developed by the Austrian physician Sigmund Freud developed psychoanalysis, a method of investigation of the mind and the way one thinks; a systematized set of theories about human behaviour and a form of psychotherapy to treat psychological or emotional distress, especially unconscious conflict.

Basically, physiological features refer to physical structure, and mechanisms of the human body. Whereas pshycology refers to the mental processes and behaviour.

You probably won't like my answer. The best way to learn the subject and be able to write a successful essay is to understand all of the terms. If a definition is unclear then research the terms in the definition that are causing you trouble. Try Googling the different terms, searching them out in a thesaurus, or other search engine. The other thing you could try is discussing it with a classmate or skimming the class text for the terms and then reading the section. Repeat research steps as necessary in order to understand all of the vocabulary. Good Luck! :D
