Recurring Events

symposium attendees

AU Symposium on Neuroscience and Behavior

Every other year the Center organizes an international symposium on a topic related to one or more of its focal themes. The world's leading researchers on the issue are invited to join scientists from the Center to present their most exciting and recent work. Participants will prepare a manuscript on their presentation for inclusion in the symposium proceedings, which will be published in a peer-reviewed, international journal.

Annual Center Retreat

All members of the Center for Neuroscience and Behavior are invited to an annual retreat. Here members will have the opportunity to present research findings and ideas with a special emphasis on identifying areas of overlap or synergy that could be the basis for collaboration. A second purpose is to report Center activities and plans to the membership for their review and evaluation.

Journal Club

In conjunction with the Behavior, Cognition, and Neuroscience (BCaN) graduate training program, the Center will coordinate a bi-weekly meeting for graduate students and faculty. A different participant each week will select a recent empirical paper for all attendees to read and discuss. For most meetings, papers discussed will investigate the effects of neural or physiological manipulations on measures of behavioral outcomes.
