What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Hippocampus

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Working memory and Episodic memory. His Cognitive psychology research focuses on Recall in particular. His study in Temporal lobe, Perirhinal cortex, Hippocampus, Cognition and Dopaminergic is carried out as part of his Neuroscience studies.

He interconnects Parahippocampal gyrus and Hippocampal formation, Entorhinal cortex in the investigation of issues within Perirhinal cortex. His Functional magnetic resonance imaging research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Brain mapping and Encoding. His Episodic memory research includes themes of Prefrontal cortex and Functional imaging.

His most cited work include:

  • The Medial Temporal Lobe and Recognition Memory (1938 citations)
  • Imaging recollection and familiarity in the medial temporal lobe: a three-component model (855 citations)
  • Two cortical systems for memory-guided behaviour (716 citations)

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

Charan Ranganath mostly deals with Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Episodic memory, Hippocampus and Recall. His research in Cognitive psychology intersects with topics in Recognition memory, Long-term memory, Cognition, Semantic memory and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. His research in Working memory, Temporal lobe, Prefrontal cortex, Electroencephalography and Entorhinal cortex are components of Neuroscience.

His Episodic memory study combines topics in areas such as Schizophrenia, Brain activity and meditation and Cognitive neuroscience. His study in Hippocampus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Encoding, Representation, Hippocampal formation, Cognitive science and Brain mapping. He combines subjects such as Developmental psychology, Neural correlates of consciousness, Stimulus and Event-related potential with his study of Recall.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (52.80%)
  • Neuroscience (45.33%)
  • Episodic memory (32.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Hippocampus (30.37%)
  • Cognitive psychology (52.80%)
  • Neuroscience (45.33%)

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

His primary areas of study are Hippocampus, Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Hippocampal formation and Episodic memory. The various areas that Charan Ranganath examines in his Hippocampus study include Middle temporal gyrus, Encoding, Representation, Cognitive science and Temporal lobe. A large part of his Cognitive psychology studies is devoted to Recall.

His study looks at the relationship between Neuroscience and fields such as Schizophrenia, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His studies deal with areas such as Stimulus, Similarity, Prefrontal cortex and Functional imaging as well as Hippocampal formation. His Episodic memory research includes elements of Brain activity and meditation and Memory consolidation.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A contextual binding theory of episodic memory: systems consolidation reconsidered. (81 citations)
  • How Curiosity Enhances Hippocampus-Dependent Memory: The Prediction, Appraisal, Curiosity, and Exploration (PACE) Framework (36 citations)
  • Structured Event Memory: A neuro-symbolic model of event cognition. (29 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Hippocampus

Charan Ranganath spends much of his time researching Hippocampus, Episodic memory, Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology and Cognitive science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Hippocampal formation, Recall and Cognitive map in addition to Hippocampus. His Recall study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Encoding, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Cortex, Perirhinal cortex and Amygdala.

His work investigates the relationship between Episodic memory and topics such as Brain activity and meditation that intersect with problems in Cognitive training, Neuroplasticity, Transfer of training and Working memory. Charan Ranganath is interested in Forgetting, which is a field of Cognitive psychology. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Biological neural network under Cognitive science, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Cognition.
