For trainees, a discussion forum for anything behavior-related aimed at broadening behavioral analysis understanding and skills

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).

Anyone interested is welcome to participate!
