ABPS Meeting 2020
Abstract Submission

Abstract submission deadline: 30 April, 2020


ABPS encourages submission of abstracts describing new research in experimental psychology, human neuroimaging and cognitive neuroscience, defined broadly as the study of the relationship between the brain, mind and behaviour. Abstracts must be written in understandable English and will be evaluated on the basis of scientific merit by peer review. Abstracts should report original research, with a recent publication or presentation at a recent meeting (e.g., within a year) of another society acceptable. Submissions should cover methods and results, although contributions with a theoretical or methodological emphasis are welcome.
