1997 - Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Amygdala, Cognition and Facial expression. His research in Neuroscience focuses on subjects like Punishment, which are connected to Moral development. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Shame, Iowa gambling task, Ventromedial prefrontal cortex and Somatic marker hypothesis.

The Amygdala study which covers Visual perception that intersects with Pattern recognition. His research in Cognition intersects with topics in Frontal lobe, Temporal lobe, Vocabulary and Cognitive science. His work carried out in the field of Facial expression brings together such families of science as Emotion classification, Functional imaging, Face perception and Social perception.

His most cited work include:

  • The Feeling of What Happens: Body and Emotion in the Making of Consciousness (4990 citations)
  • Insensitivity to future consequences following damage to human prefrontal cortex (4467 citations)
  • Deciding Advantageously Before Knowing the Advantageous Strategy (2718 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Cognitive science and Feeling. His work in Neuroscience addresses subjects such as Pathology, which are connected to disciplines such as Hippocampal formation and Temporal lobe. His Cognitive psychology research incorporates elements of Visual perception, Iowa gambling task, Somatic marker hypothesis and Empathy.

His Cognition study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Developmental psychology, Perception and Audiology. Antonio R. Damasio regularly links together related areas like Facial expression in his Amygdala studies. His Facial expression research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Face perception and Social perception.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (33.12%)
  • Cognitive psychology (23.70%)
  • Cognition (17.86%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Feeling (9.74%)
  • Cognitive science (13.96%)
  • Social psychology (5.19%)

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

Antonio R. Damasio mainly investigates Feeling, Cognitive science, Social psychology, Cognitive psychology and Neuroscience. The study incorporates disciplines such as Artificial neural network, Consciousness, Cellular mechanism and Somatic marker hypothesis in addition to Feeling. He interconnects Living systems and Set in the investigation of issues within Cognitive science.

His studies deal with areas such as Context, Neural correlates of consciousness, Affective neuroscience and Social cognition as well as Social psychology. His Cognitive psychology research integrates issues from Crossmodal, Sadness, Big Five personality traits and Perception. His Neuroscience study focuses mostly on Interoception, Prefrontal cortex, Insula and Cognition.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The nature of feelings: evolutionary and neurobiological origins. (540 citations)
  • Self Comes to Mind (178 citations)
  • Neurobiology of Decision-Making (144 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine

His primary scientific interests are in Feeling, Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Social psychology and Brain mapping. The Feeling study combines topics in areas such as Music therapy, Cognitive science, Expression and Soft robotics. His study involves Cognition, Insula and Thalamus, a branch of Neuroscience.

His Cognition research includes themes of Cerebral cortex and Neuroanatomy. Antonio R. Damasio combines subjects such as Cognitive psychology, Amnesia, Brainstem, Anterior cingulate cortex and Cortex with his study of Prefrontal cortex. Stimulus modality is the focus of his Cognitive psychology research.
