Introduction and Goals
SPA/MBB brownbag is a forum for graduate students and faculty to present and discuss research in all areas of social/personality/affective science (SPA) and mind, brain, and behavior (MBB) psychology. Our meetings have two goals: (1) to create opportunities for graduate students and faculty to present and receive feedback on current or ongoing projects and (2) to pool our knowledge about statistics, methodology, and theory, thereby expanding our understandings beyond the work being conducted in individual labs.
The SPA/MBB brownbag is held on every Wednesday from 11:00-11:55am in via the webconferencing platform Zoom. Each meeting is divided into presentation and discussion periods. There is one speaker per meeting and that speaker is able to choose the length of the presentation (up to 35 minutes), with the remainder being the discussion period.
To sign-up for a presentation or to be placed on the SPA/MBB brownbag e-mail list, please e-mail Dr. Charlotte Tate at ctate2[at]sfsu.edu.
