Strategy 1.4

Develop, for research purposes, new ways of classifying mental disorders based on dimensions of observable behavior and neurobiological measures

The implementation of Strategic Objective 1.4 is an initiative termed the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) project. In keeping with Objective 1.4, the goal of RDoC is to develop new ways of classifying patients in clinical research studies funded by the Institute in order to incorporate new scientific data from integrative neuroscience, genetic, and behavioral research at multiple levels of analysis.
