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.

The human brain is a complex network. The recent application of quantitative analysis and modeling techniques to neuroscience data sets has revealed a number of characteristic features of brain architecture. Sporns's talk will highlight promising new perspectives offered by modern network science on the structure and function of the human brain.

This is part of the Connected: Network Analyses of Brain, Behavior, and Social Interaction Theme Program. Additional Speakers
