The American Psychological Society's 16th Annual Convention will showcase some of the most exciting and relevant psychological science research

The American Psychological Society's 2004 Annual Convention program is online and searchable at http://www.psychologicalscience.org/convention/program/index.cfm.

Psychological scientists conduct cutting-edge research on issues we confront in our everyday lives. What is the role of behavior in health? How do people think, learn, and remember? What's really behind the things we think of as personality, courage, motivation, emotion, deception? How do we negotiate relationships, problems in the workplace, changes in life? Stress, mental disorder, love, memory, aging These and many more of the conditions that define us as individuals are addressed from a variety of perspectives, from neurobiology and psychophysiology to social and organizational science. It all adds up to fascinating insights into ourselves and the world around us.

This research is being presented at the Society's upcoming Annual Convention in Chicago. With the online program you can browse by day, find presenters, and conduct keyword searches on topics most relevant to your audience.
