Post-meeting Reflection

1+ paragraphs on any combination of the following:

  • Presentation highlights
  • Open questions that came up
  • How your perspective changed
  • Impact on your own work
  • e.g. the discussion on [A] that we are having reminds me of [B] conference/[C] initiative/[D] funding call-for-proposal/[E] research group

Reference material notes

Some examples:

  • Here is [A] database on [B] that I pull data from to do [C] analysis that might be of interest to this group (insert link).
  • Here is a free tool for calculating [ABC] (insert link)
  • This painting/sculpture/forms of artwork is emblematic to our discussion on [X]!
  • Schwartz et al. 2017 offers a review on [ABC] migration as relate to climatic factors (add the reference as well).
  • Braun et al. 2019 formalizes a notion of the energy of brain state transitions constrained by the underlying anatomical network architecture. The study also demonstrates that the energy to persist in a cognitively demanding state is modulated by dopamine and altered in schizophrenia.
  • Lynn et al. 2019 develops an analytical framework to study the information generated by a system as perceived by human observers, who collectively process this information in inefficient and biased ways. Our findings suggest that many real networks are constrained by the pressures of information transmission to and among biased humans, and that these pressures select for specific structural features.
