Friday, March 29, is the new deadline to submit abstracts to be considered for the 26th Annual Symposium on Research in Psychiatry, Psychology and Behavioral Science.

The event will take place Thursday, April 18, in the Mulford Library Café.

The poster session will be from 11 a.m. to noon, when Dr. Luke Hyde of the University of Michigan will present a keynote address titled “The Long Reach of Early Parenting: A Neurogenetics Approach to the Development of Antisocial Behavior.”

Along with The University of Toledo departments of Psychiatry and Psychology, the symposium is sponsored by the Bowling Green State University Department of Psychology and the University of Michigan- Dearborn Department of Behavioral Sciences.

The principal goal of the symposium is to showcase the basic and applied behavioral research being conducted by faculty members and students in the region, according to Dr. Michele Knox, professor of psychiatry at the University.

“We encourage submission of proposals from persons at all area institutions of higher learning and mental health service facilities on any topic related to psychiatry, psychology and the behavioral sciences,” Knox said.

Abstracts should include title; names and institutional affiliations of the authors; description of methods, results, and discussion of major findings. Submissions of posters that have been presented recently or are planned for presentation at a regional or national meeting are acceptable.

There are three $150 prizes for the Best Student Submission. Graduate students, undergraduate students, medical students and medical residents of any specialty will be eligible for this award, as long as they are the primary author of the poster. The posters will be rated by a committee composed of one member from each institution, on the basis of the quality of research.

Submit an abstract of no more than 300 words to Carol Brikmanis at by Friday, March 29. Students wishing to be considered for one of the three $150 prizes should send a summary of their research of no more than 1,000 words in addition to the abstract. Submissions will be acknowledged upon receipt.
