Abstract  

Psychoinformatics, a product of the information era, is an inter-disciplinary research area that incorporates computational techniques and information sciences to study human mind. It innovated how scholars acquire, organize, interpret and synthesize traditional psychological data. With its advantage to handle large dataset it shows great potential in exploring psychological mechanisms and behavioral patterns at both individual and group levels. Psychology researchers are able to inspect existing psychological theories and hypotheses from a novel perspective. The current review aims to provide guidance for readers to witness the development of this emerging psychological field. Future challenges will be discussed as well.
