Research Design in the Study of Animal Social Behavior, hosted by Mike Sheehan

A weekly discussion group for the evaluation of ongoing research projects - not necessarily finished products - in areas related to animal behavior. Neurobiology and Behavior graduate students studying animal behavior are encouraged to sign up to present once every year, especially those students in their second year and beyond. Students, post-docs and faculty from any field are welcome to both present and attend. 

Tuesdays, 11:25 a.m. - 12:40 p.m.
