NIH Toolbox for assessing behavior is released
The National Institutes of Health has developed the NIH Toolbox, a collection of brief, validated assessment tools in the domains of cognition, emotion, motor function, and sensation. It is intended to be useful for researchers and clinicians in a wide range of settings, “with a particular emphasis on measuring outcomes in longitudinal epidemiologic studies and prevention or intervention trials across the lifespan.”
A conference and training workshop about the Toolbox will be held on Sept. 10-14, 2012, in Bethesda, Md. See the conference website for additional information.
