The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) recently announced an update to the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) initiative. RDoC is a new research framework for studying mental disorders by focusing on fundamental neurobehavioral processes using integrative and complementary methods.
While the content of the RDoC Matrix will remain the same, a new user-friendly redesign offers improved navigation, a better user experience, and responsive design, which makes the matrix easier to read and navigate on mobile and desktop devices. The new design will allow researchers to include much more information about all of the elements of the matrix and see interconnections between constructs more clearly.
NIMH hopes that the redesigned matrix will be helpful to researchers who are designing new research studies.
To use and access the matrix, visit the NIMH RDoC Matrix webpage.
