Funding Opportunity Description: Funding Opportunity Purpose This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) invites applications for mechanistically oriented, exploratory and developmental research on how age- and sex-related changes in emotion processing develop over the adult life course and how these changes may interact with and inform the understanding of affective dysregulation in adult mental disorders and Alzheimer’s disease.In particular, research is sought that will leverage the already established normative backdrop of generally improved emotion regulation with aging, as well as research that will expand this evidence base.One aim is to clarify the trajectories of change in emotion processing and linked neurobiological and neurobehavioral factors in aging adults who experience mood and anxiety disorders.Equally important aims are to advance understanding of the factors involved in normative maturational shifts in these processes and of sources of individual variation therein, and to clarify how such shifts (or lack thereof) may relate to irregularities in the integrative neural-behavioral mechanisms of affect regulation seen in these adult mental disorders and in Alzheimer’s disease.It is anticipated that such studies may identify novel targets for mental health interventions or prevention efforts, or provide clues as to which available intervention strategies might be optimally applied to normalize emotion dysregulation or to strengthen emotional resilience at different stages of the adult life cycle.
