Psychonomic Society Call for Nominations for 2017 Early Career Award

The Psychonomic Society Early Career Award annually honors the distinguished research accomplishments of our early career members and fellows. Each year, up to four awardees will be named. One nominee, whose research is closest to the areas of perception and attention, will receive the Steven Yantis Early Career Award.
