The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) invites applications for
Interdisciplinary Behavioral Science Centers for Mental Health (IBSC). The purpose
of these Centers is to support collaborative, hypothesis-driven basic research
activities that will extend the most cutting-edge theories and approaches in basic
behavioral science to incorporate current approaches in neuroscience. Center
activities will be driven by a basic research question (or set of questions) that is
framed at the behavioral level (e.g., cognition, emotion, personality, social
interaction) and that is forging connection with neural-level processes.
Ultimately, knowledge yielded by such connections will increase the explanatory
power of behavioral science, and will enrich neuroscience by providing an ever-more-
detailed understanding of behavioral and mental processes. The integration of
knowledge that results will be in the service of the fullest understanding of the
complex and reciprocal biobehavioral processes responsible for mental health and
mental illness.

In addition to support for Full-scale Center activities, support also will be
available for Start-up Centers. The goal of Start-up Centers is to support a
preparatory period of multidisciplinary research prior to the launching of
integrative activities on a larger scale. Usually, this will be for those
behavioral questions, topics, or domains for which there currently are few known
links to neural processes.
