Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Stimulus, Cognitive psychology, Classical conditioning, Cognition and Facial expression. His research in Stimulus intersects with topics in Developmental psychology, Fear processing in the brain and Amygdala. His studies deal with areas such as Subliminal stimuli, Neuroscience and Fear-potentiated startle as well as Developmental psychology.

His research in Cognitive psychology intersects with topics in Psychophysiology, Social psychology and Phobias. His work on Illusory correlation and Automaticity as part of his general Cognition study is frequently connected to Field Dependence-Independence and Parallel search, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His work carried out in the field of Facial expression brings together such families of science as Backward masking, Perception, Face perception, Facial muscles and Visual search.

His most cited work include:

  • Neural systems supporting interoceptive awareness. (2448 citations)
  • Fears, phobias and preparedness: Toward an evolved module of fear and fear learning (2236 citations)
  • Emotion drives attention: detecting the snake in the grass. (1730 citations)

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

Arne Öhman mainly investigates Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Audiology, Stimulus and Classical conditioning. His Cognitive psychology study incorporates themes from Social psychology, Facial expression, Cognition and Phobias. As a member of one scientific family, Arne Öhman mostly works in the field of Developmental psychology, focusing on Heart rate and, on occasion, Hemodynamics and Type A and Type B personality theory.

His studies deal with areas such as Perceptual Masking, Electrophysiology and Interstimulus interval as well as Audiology. His work focuses on many connections between Stimulus and other disciplines, such as Amygdala, that overlap with his field of interest in Prefrontal cortex and Thalamus. His study looks at the intersection of Classical conditioning and topics like Backward masking with Communication.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (33.94%)
  • Developmental psychology (32.73%)
  • Audiology (18.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2016)?

  • Cognitive psychology (33.94%)
  • Psychiatry (24.24%)
  • Developmental psychology (32.73%)

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

Arne Öhman spends much of his time researching Cognitive psychology, Psychiatry, Developmental psychology, Clinical psychology and Stimulus. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Psychophysiology, Social psychology and Cognition, Spider fear. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Unconscious mind.

His studies in Developmental psychology integrate themes in fields like Fear conditioning and Fear-potentiated startle. His Stimulus research focuses on subjects like Amygdala, which are linked to Audiology and Major depressive disorder. His Visual search study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Valence, Arousal, Perception, Emotional stimuli and Facial expression.

Between 2006 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • Relationship between amygdala responses to masked faces and mood state and treatment in major depressive disorder. (300 citations)
  • Genetic Gating of Human Fear Learning and Extinction Possible Implications for Gene-Environment Interaction in Anxiety Disorder (208 citations)
  • Of snakes and faces: an evolutionary perspective on the psychology of fear. (129 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine

Arne Öhman mainly focuses on Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology, Extinction, Amygdala and Neuroscience. His study on Developmental psychology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Facial expression. He combines subjects such as Stimulus and Anxiety with his study of Cognitive psychology.

His work in Stimulus tackles topics such as Spider which are related to areas like Visual search, Attention task, Perception and Cognition. His work in Extinction covers topics such as Fear-potentiated startle which are related to areas like Audiology and Fear learning. The Habituation, Brain mapping and Imaging genetics research Arne Öhman does as part of his general Neuroscience study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as 5-HTTLPR, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.
