An Update on the Search for Symmetry in Nonhumans | Journal Club Series
by Dr. Nicole Bank, BCBA, LBA-TX | Available for 3 Learning BACB CEUs
This installment in our Journal Club Series will cover the article, “An update on the search for symmetry in nonhumans” authored by Lionello-DeNolf and published in Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior. CEUs are provided for reading the article, participating in an online discussion, and completing an article content quiz.
This paper reports on the history of studying symmetry in nonhumans and the subsequent work on emergent relations. This report suggests the strongest evidence for symmetry was developed with particular teaching procedures, including successive matching-to-sample procedures training both symbolic and identity relations. Areas of future research are also explored.
This is an interactive live online journal club. Participants will receive 3 Learning BACB® CEUs for completing all journal club activities. Participants are required to have read the entire article before attending the scheduled one-hour live online journal club discussion. Journal club discussions will include article details, article results, and implications for practice. Active participation is required. CEUs will be provided after completing an article content quiz on the BDS learning platform. Only those who read the article and actively participate in the live online discussion will be invited to take the content quiz. BDS is interested in increasing scholarly activities and discussion among BCBAs and BCaBAs. Stay tuned for future CE events in the BDS Journal Club Series!
