WelcomeWelcome to the Psychonomic Society's 61st Annual Meeting on the Mediasite virtual meeting platform! This year’s meeting is fully virtual, happening online November 19-22. You are joining cognitive psychologists from more than 40 countries, including some of the field's most distinguished researchers, innovative early career investigators, and graduate students already making important scientific contributions. You’ll also be participating in the Society’s first ever, fully virtual conference. We hope you make the most of the opportunity, view all the sessions you’re interested in, and participate in as much of the live content (Q&As and virtual networking events) as possible.All recorded content from the meeting will be available to registered attendees for six months after the conference.

About the Psychonomic SocietyThe 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 connects with research in biology, chemistry, statistics, computer science, medicine, law, and business.
