Convergence: Connecting Levels of Analysis in Psychological Science
 In the past, our field harbored distinct, and often competing, schools of thought that tackled different problems and produced findings that often appeared to diverge. Today, investigators attack shared problems at complementary levels of analysis and produce results that converge. Studies of people in a social world; mental systems of cognition and emotion; and biological mechanisms of the genome and the nervous system interconnect and yield an integrated psychological science. The APS 23rd Annual Convention displays, and celebrates, these advances in our field.

Previous research reported that individuals who enter prison with a low level of antisocial attitudes will develop more deviant thoughts with the passage of time due to criminal associations. However, this research suggests that the presence of criminal personality has the most significant impact on the development of a criminal thinking style.
