The journal Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics is an official journal of the Psychonomic Society. It spans all areas of research in sensory processes, perception, attention, and psychophysics. Most articles published are reports of experimental work; the journal also presents theoretical, integrative, and evaluative reviews. Founded in 1966 as Perception & Psychophysics, the journal assumed its present name in 2009.

The journal also encourages studies with a neuroscientific perspective that enhance our understanding of attention, perception, and psychophysics.
