Thirty-Sixth Annual Meeting

October 16-20, 1996
Hotel Vancouver
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The purpose of the Society is to foster research on
the interrelationships between the  physiological and
psychological aspects of behavior. Allied discipline
include psychology, physiology, medicine, and engineering.
To promote this purpose, theSociety publishes
scientific literature and holds annual meetings for
presentation and discussion of topics including instrumentation,
methodology, experimental results, and theoretical
