Planned Meetings

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 was organized by the Behavioral Neurobiology Branch (DBR) and the Etiology and Clinical Neurobiology Branch (DCSR).

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 a joint NIDA/NIH Office of Minority Research meeting in Washington, D.C. on September 26-27. The meeting is entitled "Drug Abuse Research with Minority Populations: Methodological and Theoretical Issues and Concerns."
