PSOP

Pakistan Society of Psychophysiology PSPP is an intellectual society; a hub for the assessment of psychological developments by expressions of their physiological effects.  The innovative inspiration is to endorse the ways and dissemination of exploration in psychophysiology specifically in Pakistan. Our efforts are in the direction to improve networking among psycho physiologists in the country.

We have deemed that all health science researchers who are linked partially or fully to risks, maladies or management side of Psychophysiology in Pakistan have strong urge to join such forum not only to encourage their scholars but also geographically a wider psychophysiological community willing to represent current issues in this specific area of interest.

As a significant outcome of the 1st International Conference on Endorsing Health Science Research, which was held in Karachi in 2013, the Pakistan Society of Psychophysiology (PSPP) became incorporated in AEIRC on the 23rd of March, 2013.

And one day conference is it in my gene, which will hold on 21, October, 2013.We aim to foster research on the consequences and interrelationships among physiological and psychological facets of mind, body and performance. To promote this purpose, the Society already launched IJEHSR to spread out scientific literature and since two years scientific meetings, discussion forums of research and common man awareness has been a significant part of the planned agenda. Pakistan Society of Psychophysiology (PSPP) is to establish links with international bodies relevant to psychophysiology to become an imperative stake of a growing integer of specialized societies in Psychophysiology.
