Prof. Łukasz Kaczmarek and Dr. Maciej Behnke presented their latest research results at one of the most prestigious conferences in psychology - the SPSP 2022 Annual Convention organized by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology in San Francisco, February 16-19, 2022.

The SPSP 2022 Annual Convention is the premier international event for more than 3,000 social and personality psychologists. Participants from academia, nonprofits, government, and the private sector present and discuss research, network and collaborate on projects, and grow professionally while advancing science and pedagogy in the field.

During the conference, researchers from UAM presented four papers. The highlight of the researchers' participation was a session on "Advances in social psychophysiology using challenge and threat models". The session was one of the best attended. Along with scientists from the Psychology and Cognitive Science department, their papers presented Brett Peters, Ohio State University, and Thomas Saltsman of the Singapore Institute of Management, University at Buffalo.

In addition, Dr. Behnke also spoke at two pre-conferences on emotions and nonverbal behavior. Below are the titles of the papers by Prof. Łukasz Kaczmarek and Dr. Maciej Behnke:
