A Quantitative Signature of Change in Impulsivity: Toward Prediction of Clinical Response, Warren Bickel, PhD
October 5, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 11:25 am
Warren Bickel, PhD, Virginia Tech Carilion Behavioral Health Research Professor and Professor of Psychology, Virginia Tech–
Predicting response to treatment is an important goal of science and would contribute substantially to precision medicine. One type of change, referred to as rate (or baseline) dependence, has a quantitative signature that may be exploited to predict who will and will not benefit from an intervention. Rate dependence refers to an orderly inverse relationship between a baseline measure of behavior and the change in that behavior following an intervention. In this presentation, I will review studies of impulsivity at the behavioral and neural level consistent with rate dependence and illustrate how to use this process for prediction of treatment response.
