Division 3 is working closely with Division 6, and will interface with other allied divisions to offer cutting edge science and valuable professional development opportunities for experimental psychologists at all career stages

Division 3’s 2012 program will offer thematic and temporal cohesiveness, focusing on specific topics of interest to experimental psychologists while taking advantage of the diversity and converging interests represented uniquely in APA and its annual meeting.

Division 3 is working closely with Division 6 (Behavioral Neuroscience & Comparative Psychology; program chair, Victoria Chamizo) and will interface with other allied divisions such as psychopharmacology, neuropsychology, environmental/population/conservation psychology to offer cutting edge science and valuable professional development opportunities for experimental psychologists at all career stages.

You are invited to submit proposals for presentations symposia, papers, or posters for the 2012 APA Convention.
