2006 APA Program Retrospective

Marvin Lamb, Division 3 2006 Program Chair


The Division 3 program at this year’s APA convention in New Orleans was every bit as good as expected. This year’s theme was “Mind, Brain, and Behavior”. Division 3 joined with Division 6 to host three wonderful symposia. In addition, there were nine invited addresses, a poster session, and the Presidential Address. With the notable exception of the 8:00 AM talks (too much New Orleans partying I suspect), the talks were very well attended and very well received. Many thanks too all the speakers for providing such stimulating and informative talks. Thanks also to Sally Boysen and John Gabrieli who graciously accepting our invitation to speak but unfortunately were unable to attend due to circumstances beyond their control. Finally, congratulations to Robert Hughes who received the New Investigator Award at the Division 3 Social hour.
