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.

Typical psychological approaches to understanding attitudes and behaviors focus on either individuals’ characteristics or the influence of group membership on individuals. In contrast, a social-network approach revolves around using the individual’s relationship to those people around him or her as a primary explanation of what people think and do in organizational settings.
