Review Branch Summary

The Biobehavioral Processes (BP) Review Branch considers applications on biobehavioral and behavioral processes across the lifespan as related to higher cognitive functions, mental and physical health, and psychological and physical disorders. Research on animals as well as humans is included, both normal and disordered processes are addressed, and observational, clinical and experimental studies are included. While the focus is predominantly on behavior, studies may also consider related central, autonomic, neuroendocrine, immune, neural, hormonal, motor, and genetic factors.
