The goal of the RDoC project is to define dimensions of functioning that cut across disorders as traditionally defined. The goal of this talk will be to consider dimensions of functioning which, when disrupted, increase the risk for conduct disorder symptoms. The dimensions that will be considered are: empathy, the acute threat response, reinforcement-based decision-making and response control. Treatment implications of this work will also be considered.
