Dr. Tom Aigner will be representing BNRB, DBR as a co-chair of a NIDA-sponsored
satellite symposium to the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting
in Washington, DC on November 16, 1996. Entitled "What Can Cognitive
Neuroscience Tell Us About Drug Abuse Disorders?", the meeting

A conference entitled "The Science of Self-Report: Implications
for Research and Practice", to be co-chaired by Dr. Jaylan Turkkan
will be held November 7-8, 1996, at the Masur Auditorium, on the NIH campus
in Bethesda, MD. The goal of this conference is to discuss recent developments
in the scientific study of self report. Research to be presented demonstrates
that there are many conditions where self-reports are likely to be biased,
for example, when memory processes prevent the accurate retrieval of information.
Exciting new approaches to improving self-report data will be presented.
Mario De La Rosa, Ph.D., Office of Special Populations, will be chairing
