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.

Soldiers have always struggled with readjusting to life after war. The current study evaluated over 400 soldiers using Zuckerman’s Sensation Seeking Scale and Courbasson’s Reflective Activity Scale. As expected, results indicated significantly higher sensation seeking for combat versus non-combat soldiers. Discussion will include future studies and suggestions for treatment.
