The Basic Behavioral and Social Science Opportunity Network (OppNet) requests applications for basic research on self-regulation. OppNet is a trans-NIH initiative to expand the agency’s funding of basic behavioral and social sciences research. This announcement includes 29 NIH components.
Self-regulatory processes influence health behaviors, economic decision-making, communication, processing of health messages, and persistence in academic and work-related goals. These, in turn, are related to multiple diseases and health outcomes. Understanding the basic mechanisms involved in self-regulation has implications for understanding disease risk, how interventions are designed, how health messages are framed, and how social institutions support or impede individuals’ health goals.
