Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Statistics
  • Cognitive psychology

Bruce Abernethy spends much of his time researching Cognitive psychology, Perception, Anticipation, Applied psychology and Action. His work in the fields of Visual search overlaps with other areas such as Attunement. His work carried out in the field of Perception brings together such families of science as Cognition and Communication.

His Anticipation study incorporates themes from Intervention, Control, Multimedia and Implicit learning. His study in Applied psychology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Physical therapy and Team sport. His Action research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Occlusion and Ecological validity.

His most cited work include:

  • Sport-Specific Practice and the Development of Expert Decision-Making in Team Ball Sports (386 citations)
  • Practice and play in the development of sport expertise. (330 citations)
  • Expert-novice differences in an applied selective attention task. (291 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, Perception, Applied psychology, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Physical therapy. His research investigates the connection between Cognitive psychology and topics such as Cognition that intersect with problems in Cognitive science. His Perception research includes themes of Recall, Action, Optometry, Racquet Sports and Anticipation.

His Applied psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Athletes and Training. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research focuses on Motor skill and how it connects with Rehabilitation. In the field of Physical therapy, his study on Team sport and Cerebral palsy overlaps with subjects such as Injury prevention.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (40.40%)
  • Perception (32.80%)
  • Applied psychology (17.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2019)?

  • Cognitive psychology (40.40%)
  • Perception (32.80%)
  • Physical therapy (15.20%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Cognitive psychology, Perception, Physical therapy, Social psychology and Applied psychology. He does research in Cognitive psychology, focusing on Visual search specifically. Bruce Abernethy interconnects Control and Cognition in the investigation of issues within Perception.

In general Physical therapy study, his work on Team sport and Cerebral palsy often relates to the realm of Injury prevention and Anthropometry, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Social psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Recall test and Recall. Bruce Abernethy combines topics linked to Athletes with his work on Applied psychology.

Between 2010 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Physical demands of professional rugby league training and competition using microtechnology. (191 citations)
  • Physical demands of professional rugby league training and competition using microtechnology. (191 citations)
  • The Great British Medalists Project: A Review of Current Knowledge on the Development of the World's Best Sporting Talent. (122 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Statistics
  • Physical therapy

His primary scientific interests are in Physical therapy, Perception, Cognitive psychology, Team sport and Human factors and ergonomics. His work on Cerebral palsy as part of general Physical therapy research is frequently linked to Anthropometry, Physical activity level and Sedentary lifestyle, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Bruce Abernethy combines subjects such as Ball, Optometry and Eye movement with his study of Perception.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Communication, Oculomotor control, Visual perception, Anticipation and Mental ability. His work deals with themes such as Biological motion, Cognition, Visual search, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Voxel, which intersect with Anticipation. His Team sport study frequently links to related topics such as Applied psychology.
