Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognition, Developmental psychology, Physical fitness, Aerobic exercise and Physical exercise. Charles H. Hillman has researched Cognition in several fields, including Young adult, Physical therapy, Task and Audiology. His research in Developmental psychology is mostly focused on Academic achievement.

His Physical fitness research is multidisciplinary, relying on both VO2 max, Working memory, Cardiorespiratory fitness, Eriksen flanker task and Task analysis. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Error-related negativity, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Exercise physiology, Inhibitory control and Neurocognitive. The various areas that he examines in his Physical exercise study include El Niño and Cardiovascular fitness.

His most cited work include:

  • Be smart, exercise your heart: exercise effects on brain and cognition (2096 citations)
  • Neurobiology of exercise. (657 citations)
  • Physical Fitness and Academic Achievement in Third- and Fifth-Grade Students (603 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Cognition, Developmental psychology, Aerobic exercise, Physical fitness and Physical therapy. His Cognition research incorporates themes from Academic achievement, Task, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Audiology. In the field of Developmental psychology, his study on Young adult overlaps with subjects such as Concussion.

His Aerobic exercise study combines topics in areas such as Obesity, Exercise physiology, Working memory, Inhibitory control and Neurocognitive. His research integrates issues of Cardiorespiratory fitness and Physical exercise in his study of Physical fitness. His study looks at the relationship between Physical therapy and fields such as Intervention, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognition (61.79%)
  • Developmental psychology (31.98%)
  • Aerobic exercise (32.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Cognition (61.79%)
  • Aerobic exercise (32.52%)
  • Cardiorespiratory fitness (17.07%)

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

Charles H. Hillman mostly deals with Cognition, Aerobic exercise, Cardiorespiratory fitness, Intervention and Physical therapy. His Cognition research includes elements of Obesity, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Task, Clinical psychology and Academic achievement. His Aerobic exercise study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Insula, Clinical trial, Gerontology, Working memory and Anterior cingulate cortex.

His Cardiorespiratory fitness research includes themes of Physical fitness, Association and Audiology. His studies in Physical fitness integrate themes in fields like Body mass index and Internal medicine. His studies examine the connections between Mental health and genetics, as well as such issues in Nutrition transition, with regards to Developmental psychology.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A systematic review of physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness on P3b. (30 citations)
  • Aerobic fitness and academic achievement: A systematic review and meta-analysis. (13 citations)
  • Review of High-Intensity Interval Training for Cognitive and Mental Health in Youth. (11 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience

Charles H. Hillman mainly focuses on Cognition, Aerobic exercise, Obesity, Cardiorespiratory fitness and Overweight. The concepts of his Cognition study are interwoven with issues in Randomized controlled trial, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Clinical psychology. The Aerobic exercise study combines topics in areas such as Alpha, Clinical trial and Gerontology.

His studies deal with areas such as Fractional anisotropy, White matter microstructure and Television viewing as well as Obesity. The study incorporates disciplines such as Physical fitness, P3b and Web of science in addition to Cardiorespiratory fitness. His work carried out in the field of Physical fitness brings together such families of science as Body mass index and Physical strength.
