MENTAL RETARDATION AND BRAIN BEHAVIOR RELATIONSHIPS

Project Details

Description

DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from the applicant's description) The objective of
this application is to apply the functional analysis method to the assessment
and treatment of self-injurious behavior and feeding disorders, in order to
determine the contributions of environmental events in the development and
maintenance of these problems. The success of the functional analysis method
for the treatment of self-injurious behavior has been well described for
behaviors maintained by environmental events. Less is known about behavior
that is not under the control of environmental events, and thus is presumably
more influenced by biological event. One aim of this application is to study
and treat behavior maintained by automatic reinforcement. Another aim is to
apply the knowledge based on the study and treatment of self-injurious
behavior to the study and treatment of feeding disorders.
