NatureWhat is the Psychonomic Society? 
The Psychonomic Society is the preeminent society for the experimental study of cognition. Members are scientists who study how the mind works and advance the basic science of behavior in areas that include memory, learning, problem solving, decision making, language, attention, and perception. Many members are concerned with the application of psychology to health, technology, and education, and often use converging methods such as neuroscience and computational science to achieve their research goals. Their work also Collabraconnects with research in biology, chemistry, statistics, computer science, medicine, law, and business.


All attendees must register, including members who attend for free. Registration includes unlimited access to all symposia, talks, poster sessions, receptions, and exhibits. Registering online before the meeting lets you avoid lines onsite so you can get to all the great science faster.

Statement on Anti-harassment
The Psychonomic Society is an inclusive and welcoming organization, and our meeting should reflect those values. Conference attendees and visitors should enjoy freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and freedom from harassment of all kinds. Recent events in the media remind us that academic settings are ones where we must be especially vigilant. As a scientific society, we do not want to police behavior, nor do we wish to dampen the professional and personal interactions that are so important to our meeting.  But we do encourage members to take into account others’ perspectives and consider how a question, comment, or invitation might be received when there is a power differential between parties.  No attendee should feel vulnerable to harassment at our meetings, or feel that they are enduring a climate of fear or hostility.  Let’s all work together to ensure that our values of inclusion, respect, and professionalism are ones that are enjoyed by all of our members and attendees.


Special Assistance
The Psychonomic Society wishes to ensure that no individual is excluded because of the absence of auxiliary aids or services identified in the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you require special assistance at the meeting, please complete the appropriate section of the online registration form or e-mail
