The National Institute on Aging (NIA) has announced two funding opportunities for psychological scientists. According to the NIA, the goal of this initiative is to generate interdisciplinary applications “examining social, emotional and economic behaviors of relevance to aging” using an approach that investigates both relevant behaviors and the underlying genetics or neurological processes associated with the behaviors. The agency states that proposals may focus on social, emotional, or economic behaviors alone, or on the interaction of these behavior types. For more information on this opportunity, click here.
