The distinguishing characteristic of a biological psychology experiment is that either the independent variable of the experiment is biological, or some dependent variable is biological.

 Psychology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Psychology differs from biology and neuroscience in that it is primarily concerned with the interaction of mental processes and behavior on a systemic level, as opposed to studying the biological or neural processes themselves.
The first use of the term psychology is often attributed to the "Yucologia hoc est de hominis perfectione, anima, ortu", written by the German scholastic philosopher Rudlof Goeckel (1547-1628), who often goes by the Latinized Rudolph Goclenius, and published in Marburg in 1590.
The root of the word psychology (psyche) is very roughly equivalent to "soul" in Greek, and psychology came to be considered a study of the soul (in a religious sense of this term) much later, in Christian times.
