About the Society
We are an academic society focused on the examination of psychological processes in terms of their physiological effects. The original motivation for the formation of the Society was to promote the conduct and dissemination of research and scholarship in psychophysiology in the Australasian region, and to improve networking among psychopysiologists in the region.
Psychophysiologists in the Australasian region are urged to become members and to encourage their students and colleagues to do likewise. Members from the geographically wider psychophysiological community are also very welcome.
As an outcome of the inaugural Australasian Psychophysiology Conference, which was held in Sydney in 1991, the Australasian Society for Psychophysiology (ASP) became incorporated in New South Wales under the Associations Incorporation Act (1984) on the 23rd of June, 1992. A revised constitution was recently approved under the Associations Incorporation Act (2009) effective from 1 March 2012.
Part of the strategic plan for the Society is to establish links with international bodies relevant to psychophysiology, and in this regard the Society is one of a growing number of professional societies in Psychophysiology.
