Event Type:  Webinar (This is an NIH Science event)
 
Title:  OBSSR Director's Webinar: Toward Data-driven Ontologies for Mental Function
 
Description:  Abstract

Psychological science has long been focused on the discovery of novel behavioral phenomena and the mechanistic explanation of those phenomena, which has led to a lack of cumulative conceptual progress. Dr. Poldrack will argue that the development of ontologies is essential for progress, but that these need to be tied directly to empirical data. He will provide an example from the domain of self-regulation, where we have used data-driven ontology development to describe the psychological structure of this domain and characterize its predictive validity with respect to real-world outcomes.
