The Behavior Special Topics (BeST) Meetings are a discussion forum for anything behavior-related aimed at broadening behavioral analysis understanding and skills in our trainees. The meetings are held every 4 weeks on Thursday at 2p (unless noted). Anyone interested is welcome to participate!
The format for these meetings is discussion, with each meeting leader choosing the topic, distributing an article for review and leading a discussion, including ~20-25 minutes of material/slides. All attendees are encouraged to prepare for discussion with their own reading and research on the topic, and to bring points for discussion (interesting findings from a paper, a cool paradigm, their own research design for discussion/suggestions, etc).
