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.

Recent work in decision neuroscience is providing novel insights about how the brain makes simple decisions, why different people make different choices, why some decisions are hard and others easy, and when we are likely to make mistakes.

This is part of the Choices: Social, Cognitive, and Neural Bases of Economic Decisions Theme Program. Additional Speakers
