>FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

>MEASURING BEHAVIOR '98
>International Workshop on Methods and Techniques
>in Behavioral Research
>
>Groningen, The Netherlands
>18-21 August 1998
>
>INTEGRATION OF BEHAVIOR AND PHYSIOLOGY
>
>The second international workshop on Measuring Behavior aims at the
>integration of advanced behavioral research with physiological
>measurements. Exciting new developments both in the behavioral and
>physiological sciences make such an integration feasible. The
>development of techniques and generic software tools can form a bridge
>between disciplines, which are often unaware of techniques already
>available in other fields. For example, data analysis methods stemming
>from ethology are now being used by applied psychologists, and path
>analysis techniques originally designed by entomologists are equally
>useful for behavioral pharmacologists studying rodents. Moreover,
>recent developments in radiotelemetry, brain imaging, chip technology
>and biosensor techniques originally used by physiologists are now
>being used for simultaneous recording of physiological processes and
>behavior. Along this line, we hope that Measuring Behavior '98, just
>as in 1996, will serve as a common ground for crossfertilization of
>research disciplines.

>MEASURING BEHAVIOR '96
>
>Measuring Behavior '96, the first international workshop on methods
>and techniques in behavioral research, was a great success, with 153
>participants from 25 countries. Dr. Menno Kruk (University of Leiden,
>NL), who presented the closing lecture during the workshop, wrote a
>meeting report which was published in the May issue of Trends in
>Neurosciences (vol. 20, no. 5, pp. 187-189). His article, entitled
>"Measuring behavior into the twenty-first century", places the
>proceedings of the workshop in the context of current thinking in the
>field of experimental behavioral research and is definitely worth
>reading. The proceedings of MB'96 are also available on the Web:
>http:// www.noldus.com/events/mb96/mb96.htm.

>WORKSHOP PROGRAM

>The workshop will consist of plenary sessions, demonstrations,
