The Pavlovian Society is dedicated to the scientific study of behavior and promotion of interdisciplinary scientific communication. It recognizes the value of research at the molecular level but encourages members to stress the significance of their scientific observations to the whole functioning organism.
Thus, the Society fosters an integrative scientific approach and encourages scientists to adopt it in publications and in presentations. The Society’s interest range from basic to clinical science activities. Its annual scientific meeting allows open and sometimes heated discussion of current issues in behavioral neuroscience and learning, at both basic and applied levels.
The Society also operates within a confederation of similar organizations, with a Pavlovian tradition, in Europe and the Orient
