Introduction to psychology

Psychologists and scientists use the words “empirical evidence”, “empirical research“, and “empiricism” in ‘scientific studies’.  But do we, as consumers and users of ‘scientific information’ understand what these mean?
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary (2014) defines the word “empirical” as:
1:  originating in or based on observation or experience
2:  relying on experience or observation alone often without due regard for system and theory
3:  capable of being verified or disproved by observation or experiment

What parts of our bodies do we rely upon when gathering empirical evidence?
