Panel Discussion 3 - Translational Collaborations to Further Integration and Exploration of Neural Mechanisms Across Diverse Treatment Contexts

Friday, November 17
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Indigo Ballroom A, Level 2, Indigo Level

Keywords: Translational Research | Neuroscience | Career Development
Presentation Type: Panel Discussion

The aim of this panel is to focus on the practical and methodological challenges of building cross-discipline collaborations and research approaches in an effort to improve the suitability, specificity, and manner in which evidence-based treatments impact diverse clients, settings, and communities. Panelists with a range of expertise from doctoral students to senior researchers will discuss how to feasibly integrate approaches that include neural mechanisms across a wide spectrum of cognitive and behavioral research. This discussion will serve as an evidence-based, best practice opportunity to help researchers meaningfully forge collaborative pathways from neuroscience to treatment. For experimental researchers, this may mean choosing clinically applicable models for their research and learning to collaborate with treatment researchers. For treatment researchers, this may mean reading more basic neuroscience and learning to translate knowledge from basic and experimental paradigms to novel human treatment models.  


The panel will concentrate on 1) how basic and experimental researchers can use the tools they have to directly inform existing treatments, even if they were not originally mechanistically targeted (e.g., CBT), 2) how researchers of existing treatments can more directly have neuroscience results inform their work (e.g., neural processes that may impact client’s progress but are not targets of treatment), and 3) how basic, experimental and treatment researchers can best collaborate to develop novel treatments with tools including cognitive training and computational models. Attendees should leave with concrete ideas for cultivating integrative neuroscience-to-treatment collaborations that will inform and develop their own programs of research.


This panel is intended to spark diverse collaboration across disciplines with the goal of furthering exploration of evidence-based clinically applicable experimental platforms and novel mechanistically guided treatment frameworks.  The intentional integration of neural mechanisms across disciplines can foster collaboration that moves beyond silos to build upon existing strengths and address deficits seen in many clinical populations.
