I prefer retaining the English term, then maybe add a parenthetical definition in tagalog.

It is better to retain the same word and write "Psychophysics" then define the meaning in Tagalog inside the open and close parenthesis. Since there is no official Tagalog translation of psychophysics. We can not translate it as pisika ng sikolohiya this means 'the nature of psychology' since pisika is nature o kalikasan.
"Psychophysics" (ang maka-agham na pag-aaral tungkol sa kaugnayang namamagitan sa bagay o pangayayari at damdamin o reaksiyon.

"Psychophysics" mistyping sorry ngayon ko lang napansin na "Phychophysics" pala ang nailagay ko na translation.
