SPR's annual meeting is widely regarded as a leading forum for presentations on cutting-edge research on the connections between the physiological and psychological aspects of behavior. The program features original research in behavioral genetics, neuroscience, visual and audio perception, emotion, cognition, personality, human development, and psychopathology, to name just some of the areas that will be represented. Approximately 400 scientists are expected to attend.
The hallmark of this highly international, highly interdisciplinary meeting is research aimed at increasing our scientific understanding of such issues as: the physical symptoms of stress; gender differences; parent-child relationships; the origins and manifestations of mental illness; how people think, learn and remember; and the links between social and biological development, among other topics.
To further illustrate the range of issues that will be discussed and the relevance of this research to everyday life, a list of selected presentations appears at the end of this press release. Please contact SPR if you are interested in receiving further information on these topics, or if you would like to interview the scientists who will be presenting their research. Abstracts of all presentations at the meeting are published in the August supplement of the journal Psychophysiology, available through the SPR office. Media representatives receive complimentary registration. For copies of the Psychophysiology supplement or to register, please contact the SPR office at (202) 393-4810.
