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, 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.
A Preconference Workshop Genetic Research in the Psychophysiological Laboratory will introduce participants to the main approaches in current molecular and behavioral genetic research with an emphasis on applications to psychophysiological research.
To further illustrate the range of issues that will be discussed and the relevance of this research to everyday life, several of this year's noteworthy presentations is provided below. The full program and other meeting information is available at http://www.sprweb.org. 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 throu
