NIMH News Feed

  1. Science News » Neuroimaging technique may help predict autism among high-risk infants
    Functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging (fcMRI) may predict which high-risk, 6-month old infants will develop autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by age 2 years.
  2. Video » NIMH Institutional Training (T32) Informational Webinar
    This March 29, 2017 NIMH informational webinar on T32 applications may be a useful resource in preparing applications.
  3. Science News » Brain Circuit Tweak Wins Her Affection (if she’s a vole)
    For the first time, neuroscientists have boosted a female rodent’s partnering with a male by stimulating connectivity of a brain reward circuit. Understanding the circuitry of such affiliative behaviors may lead to improved treatments for social impairment in severe mental disorders, such as...
  4. Blog Post » The Future of RDoC
    In the first of two messages, Dr. Gordon shares his thoughts on NIMH’s Research Domain Criteria (RDoC), and discusses how we might be able to use big data approaches to enhance this research framework in the future.
  5. Science News » Connections Strengthen Within Specialized Networks as Brain’s Executive Function Matures
    As we grow up, our brain’s specialized networks become more structurally segregated, contributing to improved executive functioning. These densely interconnected “modules” process information for key functions that underlie development of mental control and self-regulation.
  6. Science News » Pediatrics-based Brief Therapy Outdoes Referral for Youths with Anxiety and Depression
    A streamlined behavioral therapy delivered in a pediatrics practice offered much greater benefit to youth with anxiety and depression than a more standard referral to mental health care with follow-up in a clinical trial comparing the two approaches.
  7. Science News » NIMH Grantee Wins One of Science’s Most Coveted Prizes
    NIMH grantee Karl Deisseroth, M.D., Ph.D., of Stanford University, has been awarded one of science’s most generous prizes. A German foundation presented the inventor of technologies that are transforming neuroscience with its 4 million euros Fresenius Prize.
  8. Concept Clearance » Explainable Artificial Intelligence for Decoding and Modulating Behaviorally-Activated Brain Circuits
    The goal of this initiative is to solicit applications in the area of eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) applied to NIMH’s mental health priorities. Current machine learning approaches focus on classifying and predicting brain and behavioral signals but their solutions still remain...
  9. Concept Clearance » Novel Approaches to Understanding the Mechanisms of the Neuropsychiatric Symptoms in Alzheimer’s and Advancing Therapy Development
    The goal of this initiative is to encourage research that will enhance knowledge of mechanisms underlying neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) in dementia so as to develop novel treatments.
  10. Concept Clearance » A Practice-Based Research Network to Transform Mental Health Care: Science, Service Delivery & Sustainability
    The goal of this initiative is to support a practice-based research network to transform the development, delivery, and sustainability of evidence-based mental health practices and services.
