Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Developmental psychology

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Developmental psychology, Cognition, Episodic memory, Cognitive psychology and Face. Her work in the fields of Cognition, such as Spatial ability and Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, overlaps with other areas such as Longitudinal study. Her Spatial ability study incorporates themes from Estrogen and Elementary cognitive task.

In Episodic memory, Agneta Herlitz works on issues like Semantic memory, which are connected to Memoria. Her Cognitive psychology study deals with Verbal memory intersecting with Visual memory. Agneta Herlitz interconnects Recognition memory and Social psychology, Gender bias in the investigation of issues within Face perception.

Her most cited work include:

  • Very Old Women at Highest Risk of Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease Incidence Data from the Kungsholmen Project, Stockholm (480 citations)
  • Gender differences in episodic memory (477 citations)
  • Nerve growth factor affects 11C-nicotine binding, blood flow, EEG, and verbal episodic memory in an Alzheimer patient (case report). (280 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Agneta Herlitz mostly deals with Developmental psychology, Cognition, Episodic memory, Dementia and Cognitive psychology. Her Developmental psychology study combines topics in areas such as Memoria, Recognition memory and Face perception. Her work on Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance as part of general Cognition study is frequently linked to Verbal fluency test, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Her work carried out in the field of Episodic memory brings together such families of science as Recall, Spatial ability, Audiology, Verbal memory and Semantic memory. Her studies in Dementia integrate themes in fields like Alzheimer's disease, Psychiatry, Extraversion and introversion and Incidence. Her Cognitive psychology research includes elements of Treadmill and Cognitive strategy.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Developmental psychology (61.47%)
  • Cognition (54.13%)
  • Episodic memory (50.46%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Developmental psychology (61.47%)
  • Cognition (54.13%)
  • Clinical psychology (12.84%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Agneta Herlitz mainly focuses on Developmental psychology, Cognition, Clinical psychology, Episodic memory and Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance. Her Developmental psychology study combines topics in areas such as Visual search and Novelty. Her study connects Sex characteristics and Cognition.

Her Clinical psychology research includes themes of Psychosexual development, Stuttering, Outpatient clinic and Cognitive test. Her study explores the link between Episodic memory and topics such as Meta-analysis that cross with problems in Verbal memory and Audiology. Her Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cognitive Changes, Cognitive ageing, Atrophy and Ageing.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Sex differences in academic strengths contribute to gender segregation in education and occupation: A longitudinal examination of 167,776 individuals (47 citations)
  • Caregiving experience and its relation to perceptual narrowing of face gender. (40 citations)
  • What did you do yesterday? A meta-analysis of sex differences in episodic memory. (28 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Developmental psychology

Her primary areas of investigation include Developmental psychology, Episodic memory, School subjects, Matching and Relative strength. Her Developmental psychology research incorporates elements of Cognition and Association. The various areas that Agneta Herlitz examines in her Episodic memory study include Meta-analysis and Verbal memory.
