Behavioral Research at NIMH: Reorganizing the Portfolio to Advance Public Health (February 28, 2005)

Changes at NIMH have raised questions about NIMH funding for basic behavioral science that I would like to address. First, let me say that behavioral science is crucial to our success in meeting the very serious — and growing — challenge of reducing the burden of mental and behavioral disorders. Refining phenotypes, detecting gene-behavior-environment interactions, developing diagnostic tests and new interventions for prevention and treatment, and enhancing rehabilitation and recovery all require basic behavioral science. The methods and principles of behavioral science provide fundamental knowledge about mental and social processes, and how and why certain behaviors occur in specific situations; they provide the tools by which behavior can be accurately measured, shaped, and changed. The Institute and the field have made extraordinary achievements in these areas. more>>
