 NIH Guide: TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH CENTERS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE (TRCBS)
The purpose of these centers is to support the translation of work from basic behavioral science research, and relevant integrative neuroscience research, to pressing issues regarding all aspects of mental disorders.
Thus, research programs in the basic behavioral sciences should serve as a source of concepts and methods for clinical work; data gathered from clinical or high-risk populations may prompt additional research questions to be tested with non-clinical samples, or new methodological questions to be addressed.
Relevant areas of basic behavioral research include: cognition, including learning, memory, perception, etc.; affective processes, including emotion, mood, and motivation; temperament and personality; social cognition; social and cultural influences and processes; attitudes and persuasion; interpersonal relationships; and fundamental biobehavioral processes such as sleep and eating (http://www.nimh.nih.gov/publist/953682.htm).

 Behavioral and Brain Functions |
Behavioral and Brain Functions is an Open Access, peer-reviewed, online journal that encompasses all aspects of neurobiology where the unifying theme is behavior or behavioral dysfunction.
Behavioral and Brain Functions is aimed at the scientific community interested in behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, investigating the psychological, computational, and neuroscientific bases of normal and abnormal behavior including the mind.
Behavioral and Brain Functions's articles are archived in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine's full-text repository of life science literature, and also in repositories at the University of Potsdam in Germany, at INIST in France and in e-Depot, the National Library of the Netherlands' digital archive of all electronic publications.

 Behavioral science claims the decade
Those statistics illustrate what behavioral and social scientists are eager to emphasize: that even as strides in genetics and neuroscience have captured the public's imagination, behavior--what people think, and decide, and do--drives some of society's best achievements, as well as some of its worst failings.
That's the rationale behind the "Decade of Behavior," an interdisciplinary effort to promote the importance of behavioral and social science research modeled after the 1990s' "Decade of the Brain." The initiative, whose five themes include health, education, safety, prosperity and democracy, was officially launched on Capitol Hill in September (see sidebar).
For one, critics argue, the model for the Decade of Behavior, the Decade of the Brain, was itself not entirely successful in achieving all of its goals, including promoting the importance of brain research to the general public.

 Social and Behavioral Sciences Information on Healthline
Many social and behavioral science disciplines are relevant to the understanding and articulation of the mission of public health.
Since that time, the theoretical development of economics, political science, sociology, and anthropology has accelerated, but it was often not brought to bear on contemporary public health issues because these issues were often defined in terms of the characteristics of individuals rather than as characteristics of social structure.
Thus, the interpretation of the role of the social and behavioral sciences in public health is very much tied to one's definition of public health.

 NIMH Reorganization Creates Uncertain Future for Basic Behavioral Science
As Insel previewed in the July Psychological Science Agenda, the institute’s organizational structure is being re-focused to facilitate and accelerate translational and interdisciplinary science, to more clearly identify brain-behavior pathophysiology – and to translate this knowledge into developing more effective interventions that target symptoms and functioning.
It is clear that some areas of basic behavioral science, especially those directly tied to brain-behavior relations or mental disorders, will still have support within the basic science division, as will much of the research on human and animal cognition, learning, memory, attention, and decision-making.
For example, areas that were traditionally funded by the basic science division, such as much social and personality psychology, are being moved into the new translational research or AIDS and Health and Behavior divisions, with an increased requirement to re-focus work on the research’s application to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment for mental disorders.

Research Areas The goal of the TRCBS program is to support the translation of basic behavioral science research to significant issues in mental disorders and mental health services.
Relevant areas of basic behavioral research include: cognition, including learning, memory, perception, etc.; affective processes, including emotion, mood, and motivation; temperament and personality; social cognition; social and cultural influences and processes; attitudes and persuasion; interpersonal relationships; and fundamental biobehavioral processes such as sleep and eating.

In response to the need for such approaches, an Institute of Medicine (IOM) committee was asked to examine the needs, obstacles, and strategies for interdisciplinary training in the brain, behavioral, and clinical sciences.
The committee’s report, Bridging Disciplines in the Brain, Behavioral, and Clinical Sciences, contains recommendations that delineate, enhance, and accelerate a process that is already reflected in many training and research programs.
Although this report focuses on examples from brain and behavioral science, the principles presented may be broadly applicable in scientific research and training.
