Psychology can make this world a better place: How psychological approaches pay off in terms of human, social and financial capital Conclusions of the International Congress for Psychology 2012 "Serving the humanity" that ends today in Cape Town
Published: 07.08.2012 | RPS

Psychology can make this world a better place. This is one of the conclusions out of five days of meetings, talks, presentations and discussions of about 6.000 participants at the International Congress of Psychology (ICP) 2012 in Cape Town South Africa. “To meet the challenges of the changes we are witnessing across the world, be it due to scientific advances, or financial catastrophes, to political transformation, or climate change and ecological fragility, we have to come together more than ever before.” said Rainer K. Silbereisen, outgoing President of the International Union of Psychological Science IUPsyS. “We have to pool our knowledge and expertise, and we have to learn from one another — we have to recognise the contribution all areas of the world can make, and understand the importance of diversity.”

Psychology for Health – Contributions to Policy Making. September 20-21, 2012, Brussels, Belgium.
Published: 27.06.2012 | RPS

Organised by the European Federation of Psychologists Associations EFPA.
International non-governmental organization enjoying participatory status with the Council of Europe

Developing healthy life styles, preventing disease, and (self-) managing chronic disease and adverse life events are closely linked to how people think, feel and act. It should therefore come a no surprise that psychology, as the science of human cognition, emotion and behaviour, has substantial contributions to make when it comes to promoting personal and public health.

We invite experts and policy makers from European institutions, the EU member states, other European countries, the health sector and NGOs to register on-line through this website http://www.efpa.eu/PsyforHealthCongress2012. As participation is limited to 250 delegates representing different disciplines and institutions, we strongly recommend registering early (before July 15, 2012).

Noble Prize in Physiology/Medicine 2014 awarded to Psychologists

Psychologists John O'Keefe (UK) and wife and husband May‐Britt and Edvard Moser (Norway) from the University of Trondheim won this year's Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine for discovering an “inner GPS” in the brain.

O'Keefe's pioneering work in 1971 was confirmed a generation later, in 2005, by the Mosers, making a considerable contribution to behavioural science.

This year´s Nobel Laureates receive the prize for their discoveries of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain. They have discovered a positioning system, an “inner GPS” in the brain that makes it possible to orient ourselves in space, demonstrating a cellular basis for higher cognitive function. They discovered how the brain knows where we are and is able to navigate from one place to another. Their findings may help explain why Alzheimer's disease patients cannot recognize their surroundings.
