Psychiatry related information on Behavioral Sciences

  • The Supreme Court's use of empirical behavioral science data has grown dramatically in the 40 years since Brown v. Board of Education. Most of these data are submitted in amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs submitted by parties with an interest in the outcome of the significant mental health law cases coming before the court [1].

High impact information on Behavioral Sciences

  • This notion, now called the "Nash equilibrium," has been widely applied and adapted in economics and other behavioral sciences [2].
  • The emergence of the social and behavioral sciences in dentistry: Lois Cohen as principal architect [3].
  • The integration of oxytocin (OT) into behavioral science seems to hold considerable promise for advancing our understanding of human health and development but methodological issues restrict the measurement of OT in large studies, in everyday social settings, or when repeated sampling is required [4].
  • Because it supports research across all major branches of science and technology, including the social and behavioral sciences, the NSF has been a focus of discussions about converging technologies to enhance human capabilities and serve human needs [5].
  • Bioethics is offered as part of a series called Correlative Medicine and in a required course, Behavioral Science. The present director of the Office of Medical Humanities has resigned and at present there is a search for a replacement [6].

Chemical compound and disease context of Behavioral Sciences


Gene context of Behavioral Sciences

  • The science-focused group attained higher mean scores (p less than .05) on three science sections of the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Part I examination, and the broadly prepared group scored higher on the Behavioral Sciences section (p less than .05) [9].
  • Efforts to foster homogeneity through improved classification are considered fundamental in behavioral science and should be applied to epilepsy [10].
  • Significant correlations were found between WGCTA scores and final scores for nearly all preclinical courses; however, the only correlations reaching .40 were for Behavioral Science 1 and Biometrics. Correlations between WGCTA scores and first- and second-year GPAs and scores on the USMLE Step 1 were between .33 and .36 [11].
  • The survey of the STFM Behavioral Science Task Force was analyzed for responses of behavioral scientists to questions regarding anticipations, satisfactions, and frustrations [12].
  • The author assembles a theory of historical generations from dispersed sources in the social and behavioral sciences and in the humanities, differentiates the theory from formulations of other generation concepts, and applies it to central features in the lives of persons in the generation of the Great Depression and World War II [13].
