International societies

Psychonomic society

The international community of cognitive psychologists recognizes the Psychonomic Society as the preeminent society for the experimental study of cognition. Since it was formed nearly 60 years ago, the Society has grown to over 4,300 scientists.
Members are cognitive psychologists and include some of the most distinguished researchers in the field. Many are concerned with the application of psychology to health, technology, and education. What brings us together is that we study the basic, fundamental properties of how the mind works by using behavioral techniques to better understand mental functioning.
