NIH Videos Demonstrate Behavior’s Role In Personal Health
The National Institutes of Health’s Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) released four videos highlighting outstanding behavioral and social science research on mindless eating, risk-taking, diabetes management, and the evolution of skin pigmentation. The videos, called Research Highlights, are available on both the OBSSR web site – http://1.usa.gov/UxN7fL – and the NIH YouTube channel – http://bit.ly/RiFkhQ and feature prominent researchers describing their work and its implication for society.
“Understanding our behavior,” said OBSSR Director Dr. Robert Kaplan, “and making better decision puts us in charge of our own health. These short films highlight some of the benefits of behavioral and social science research – both for us an individuals and for society as a whole.
