Fellow of The Academy of Medical Sciences, United Kingdom

Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

Her primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Cognition, Audiology, Psychiatry and Frontal lobe. Her Neuroscience research incorporates themes from Dementia and Parkinson's disease. Her Cognition study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Developmental psychology and Mood.

Her Audiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery, Spatial memory, Recognition memory, Neuropsychological test and Cognitive disorder. Psychiatry is closely attributed to Clinical psychology in her study. Her Frontal lobe research integrates issues from Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, Central nervous system, Normal volunteers, Hippocampus and Epilepsy surgery.

Her most cited work include:

  • Stop-signal inhibition disrupted by damage to right inferior frontal gyrus in humans. (1372 citations)
  • Grand challenges in global mental health (1255 citations)
  • Planning and spatial working memory following frontal lobe lesions in man. (1060 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Cognition, Neuroscience, Psychiatry, Clinical psychology and Audiology. Her studies in Cognition integrate themes in fields like Developmental psychology and Cognitive psychology. As part of her studies on Neuroscience, Barbara J. Sahakian often connects relevant areas like Dementia.

Depression, Impulsivity, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Cognitive disorder and Major depressive disorder are the primary areas of interest in her Psychiatry study. The various areas that Barbara J. Sahakian examines in her Clinical psychology study include Neurocognitive and Mania, Bipolar disorder. Her research in Audiology intersects with topics in Alzheimer's disease, Recognition memory, Neuropsychological test and Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cognition (39.25%)
  • Neuroscience (26.95%)
  • Psychiatry (27.41%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cognition (39.25%)
  • Clinical psychology (17.13%)
  • Neuroscience (26.95%)

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

Barbara J. Sahakian mainly focuses on Cognition, Clinical psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive flexibility and Neurocognitive. Barbara J. Sahakian combines subjects such as Dementia and Mood with her study of Cognition. Her work deals with themes such as Task, Affect and Endophenotype, which intersect with Clinical psychology.

The concepts of her Cognitive flexibility study are interwoven with issues in Obsessive compulsive, Working memory, Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery, Prefrontal cortex and Neuroimaging. Her research investigates the connection between Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery and topics such as Ventral striatum that intersect with problems in Audiology. Her study in Audiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cohort and Depression.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Mapping Compulsivity in the DSM-5 Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders: Cognitive Domains, Neural Circuitry, and Treatment (89 citations)
  • A Randomized Trial Directly Comparing Ventral Capsule and Anteromedial Subthalamic Nucleus Stimulation in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Clinical and Imaging Evidence for Dissociable Effects (62 citations)
  • Dissociable effects of acute SSRI (escitalopram) on executive, learning and emotional functions in healthy humans. (30 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience

Barbara J. Sahakian spends much of her time researching Cognition, Cognitive flexibility, Anxiety, Clinical psychology and Psychiatry. Her Cognition research includes themes of Cognitive science and Dementia. Her Cognitive flexibility study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cognitive impairment, Obsessive compulsive, Working memory, Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery and Executive functions.

Her work focuses on many connections between Executive functions and other disciplines, such as Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, that overlap with her field of interest in Audiology. Her Psychiatry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Oncology and Naltrexone. Her Biological psychiatry research incorporates elements of Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Neuroscience.
