Webinar: Analyzing and Using RDoC Data in Your Research

Watch the latest RDoC webinar featuring NIMH-funded researchers

Institute Update

In May, the NIMH Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) Unit hosted a webinar featuring a conversation with three NIMH-funded researchers who have approached the issue of how to analyze and integrate data that illustrate RDoC principles.

The RDoC initiative aims to reframe mental health research—from research to treatment. The initiative cuts across traditional diagnostic categories to identify relationships among observable behavior, neurobiological measures, and patient self-report that are relevant to mental disorders. The latest webinar provided a variety of perspectives on how to conduct RDoC studies.
