Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Social psychology
  • Developmental psychology

His main research concerns Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Imitation, Cognition and Perception. The Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Communication, Imitative learning, Memoria, Observational learning and Gesture. His Developmental psychology research incorporates elements of Cognitive development, Gaze and Social perception.

His Imitation research integrates issues from Theory of mind, Cognitive science, Recall and Social cognition. His Cognition research includes themes of Stimulus modality, Language development, McGurk effect and Nonverbal communication. His research integrates issues of Audiology, Action, Empathy, Pain empathy and Functional magnetic resonance imaging in his study of Perception.

His most cited work include:

  • Imitation of facial and manual gestures by human neonates. (2413 citations)
  • Understanding the Intentions of Others: Re-Enactment of Intended Acts by 18-Month-Old Children. (1436 citations)
  • Words, thoughts, and theories (1066 citations)

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

Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Imitation, Cognition and Social cognition are his primary areas of study. His study in Cognitive psychology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cognitive development, Perception, Theory of mind, Object and Gesture. Andrew N. Meltzoff has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Visual perception and Social psychology.

His studies in Imitation integrate themes in fields like Social learning, Cognitive science and Action. In his study, Language acquisition is strongly linked to Language development, which falls under the umbrella field of Cognition. The concepts of his Social cognition study are interwoven with issues in Gaze and Social perception.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (39.32%)
  • Developmental psychology (38.08%)
  • Imitation (29.41%)

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

  • Developmental psychology (38.08%)
  • Cognitive psychology (39.32%)
  • Social psychology (13.31%)

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

His primary areas of study are Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology, Social psychology, Social cognition and Imitation. His Developmental psychology research incorporates themes from Valence and Anger. Andrew N. Meltzoff interconnects Affective science, Body Representation, Perception, Matching and Interpersonal relationship in the investigation of issues within Cognitive psychology.

His Social psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Intervention, Early childhood education and Nonverbal communication. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Control, Meaning, Treatment and control groups and Prosocial behavior. Andrew N. Meltzoff interconnects Social learning, Somatosensory system, Action, Cognitive neuroscience and Human body in the investigation of issues within Imitation.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Programming experience promotes higher STEM motivation among first-grade girls. (113 citations)
  • Re‐examination of Oostenbroek et al. (2016): evidence for neonatal imitation of tongue protrusion (87 citations)
  • Social group membership increases STEM engagement among preschoolers. (58 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Social psychology
  • Developmental psychology

Andrew N. Meltzoff spends much of his time researching Developmental psychology, Imitation, Child development, Cognitive psychology and Social cognition. As part of one scientific family, Andrew N. Meltzoff deals mainly with the area of Developmental psychology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Cognition, and often Developmental Science and Association. Andrew N. Meltzoff is involved in the study of Imitation that focuses on Cognitive imitation in particular.

His Child development research incorporates elements of Infant newborn, Early infancy and Self-esteem. His research integrates issues of Interpersonal communication, Visual short-term memory and Cognitive neuroscience in his study of Cognitive psychology. His study in Social cognition is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Science education and Treatment and control groups.
