Mechanisms of Biobehavioral and Mood Dysregulation Program


This program supports research on the mechanisms underlying mood dysregulation in childhood-onset mental disorders. Of particular interest is research that identifies genetic factors and/or aspects of neural structure or function associated with dysregulated mood, anxiety, emotional processing, and biobehavioral processes such as sleep and appetite. Examples of areas of interest include positive and negative affect, suicidality, anxiety, fear, mood cycling, sleep/circadian rhythm disturbance, appetite dyscontrol, and motivation.
