Synergy in Basic and Applied BSSR

Synergy in Basic and Applied BSSR

OBSSR is committed to advancing cross-cutting approaches that stimulate health-related research on the fundamental processes that influence behavior and social systems. This includes facilitating the translation of basic BSSR findings into pathways to improve individual and population health and using intervention or population-based research findings to inform meaningful new fundamental research questions.

Opiode addiction predictors.

Why do opioids put some people to sleep and do not seem to be addictive, while others easily succumb? Are there any genetic tasting relationships? Like cilantro can taste like soap to some people (who may be the sleepers), but it tastes good to other people who get easily addicted.

I do not want to do research on this myself. This is just an idea for research.

Intimate Partner Violence as a risk factor for depression among women of child bearing age in Southern Africa

The WHO (2016) and CDC (2014) have respectively identified Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) as an important public health problem globally. Prevalence rates of IPV reportedly vary geographically and by economic strata albeit with limited effective evidence based interventions in the USA per the United States Preventive Services Task Force( 2018). The situation is worse in some Low-Middle income countries (WHO). Studies... more »

Understanding the Impact of Adverse Childhood Events on Adult Diseases

Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) have far reaching impacts on adult health, leading to an increase in addiction (drugs/alcohol), Type 2 Diabetes, Depression, etc. By addressing the reasons for the development of ACEs (e.g., food insecurity, unstable home life/trauma) and working to include education and coping skills, we might be able to shape the health of future generations. Addressing these issues is complicated,... more »

Global health and technologies

This is a general comment and not a topic of research. It seems that global health, especially in under-resourced settings, where high prevalence of disease and co-morbid conditions are often concentrated due to lack of capital and expertise, is missing. The same goes for the use of technology (mobile health, e-health, telehealth, wearables), which can in fact more effectively support the implementation of interventions... more »

A most fundamental principle

Investigators must be trained in a strong habit of fascinated attraction toward things that appear to be nonsense, non-sequitur, disconnected from all other information. Most of us immediately look away from what won't evaluate, and naturally search out relation. But the most valuable solutions, new ideas, breakthroughs and original thoughts are arbitrary points or responses to arbitrary points, not amendments to any... more »

Sir

Even though marijuana is illegal in the United States many states are permitting its "get high" use. As marijuana use expands, as we can expect since some factions are promoting it and spreading myths that it has no detrimental effect, and some states see taxing dollars that they can spend, we can expect more negative health impact. Both physical health and mental health will be adversely effected. This will drain more... more »

Graduate Training Programs in Translational Science

A major barrier to effective synergy between "basic" and "applied" BSSR is that individual investigators typically have been trained primarily on one side or the other of that spectrum. The traditional solution to this problem is collaboration: more "basic" and more "applied" scientists can learn to collaborate with each other. This solution has been somewhat effective and collaboration will always been important. But... more »

Systematic Integrated Health Care Initiative Applied Behavioral Analysis Access for Dementia Care

Skilled Nursing Facilities are positioned to fill more and more critical roles as our expected longevity increases. Within SNF care and challenges, one of the greatest is humanely addressing patient behavioral disturbances without the use of chemical restraints, like antipsychotic medications. Examples would include Dementia residents who repetitively call out, become fearful or combative during bathing, residents who... more »

Applying BSSR work to people with disabilities

We often conduct research to look at important health behavior issues and evaluate health behavior interventions. However, many times, people with disabilities are left out of the research. And many times, intervention adjustments for people with disabilities are not provided. More work is needed to be more inclusive in health behavior research.

Developing a theory of nursing based on the ideas of Nobel laureates and nominees.

Nursing is an interdisciplinary field, the role of which increases in the era of the "Epidemic of Disease". The development of the theory of nursing, based on the ideas of Nobel laureates and nominees, will allow us to consider the relationship in the "triangle": patient - nurse / relatives - doctor, taking into account social and economic components. Its advantage may be the ability to use when developing artificial... more »

Targeting the Biology of the Brain to Enhance Behavioral Adoption of Healthy Nutrition and Exercise in Health and Disease

Healthy nutrition and physical activity/exercise are broadly recognized as key approaches with established benefits for today's health problems. However, very little has been done in being able to increase the adoption of these health-related behaviors . Promoting healthy behaviors would be key to minimize disease burden. Propose to focus more on the biology (i.e., brain biology) of those behaviors (current emphasis has... more »

The "Impact Thinking" research framework builds research-to-practice pipelines via collaborative, transdisciplinary strategizing

To make truly groundbreaking discoveries that translate into changes in policy and practice, researchers and practitioners across diverse disciplines need a common process for discovering, evaluating, refining, replicating, and scaling successful neuroaesthetics interventions. Beyond a theoretical frame, this work needs an organizing mechanism that facilitates collaboration across disciplines and organizes key data sets,... more »

Develop and evaluate behavioral treatments for opioid use disorder and chornic pain

We need to develop and evaluate treatments for patients with opioid use disorder and chronic pain. Rather than simply focusing on medications and brain imaging, we should attempt to improve the current behavioral treatments offered to patients. It's quite telling that little of NIH's HEAL initiative has targeted behavioral treatments.
