Association for Psychological Science

The Association for Psychological Science (APS), founded in 1988, seeks to “promote, protect, and advance the interests of scientifically oriented psychology in research, application, teaching, and the improvement of human welfare.” This website takes a step toward that goal. Start with the homepage, where you can find a list of links to Psychological Science in the News, featuring up to date coverage of psychology research in such news outlets as the New York Times, ABC News, and many others. Also check out recent issues of Observer, the association’s magazine, with articles about the latest scientific psychology. If you’re interested in the science of psychology, this site will provide hours of learning and fun. Educators, especially, will find much to digest in the Teaching section, replete with APS Blogs by Wray Herbert and Teaching Tips.

Inside the Psychologist’s Studio Videos

The Association for Psychological Science (APS) is offering this terrific set of interviews and conversations with prominent psychologists to the general public. Currently, there are nine interviews available here, which visitors can read about to determine how to start. One particularly noteworthy conversation is between Nobel Laureate and APS Fellow Daniel Kahneman and Professor Richard Thaler of the University of Chicago. During the conversation, they talk about the relationship between psychology and economics, and offer thoughts on academic controversies and collaborations. The other individuals interviewed here include National Medal of Science winner Gordon Bower, Janet Taylor Spence, and Michael Gazzaniga.
