Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Neuroscience

Developmental psychology, Object, Eye movement, Child development and Cognitive development are his primary areas of study. Claes von Hofsten has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Development and Social perception. Claes von Hofsten combines subjects such as Facial expression, Autism, Autism spectrum disorder, Eye tracking and Generalization with his study of Eye movement.

His Child development study combines topics in areas such as Cognitive psychology, Gaze, Psychomotor learning, Anticipation and Motor system. His work investigates the relationship between Gaze and topics such as Visual perception that intersect with problems in Communication. His studies deal with areas such as Spatial ability, Perspective, Spatial cognition, Control and Affordance as well as Cognitive development.

His most cited work include:

  • Eye–hand coordination in the newborn. (423 citations)
  • The iCub humanoid robot: An open-systems platform for research in cognitive development (398 citations)
  • Developmental changes in the organization of prereaching movements (248 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology, Perception, Eye movement and Object. His Developmental psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Eye–hand coordination, Facial expression and Cognition. He is involved in the study of Cognitive psychology that focuses on Mirror neuron in particular.

The Eye movement study combines topics in areas such as Motion perception and Gaze, Eye tracking, Computer vision. His research on Gaze also deals with topics like

  • Anticipation that intertwine with fields like Motor system,
  • Nonverbal communication, which have a strong connection to Joint attention and Verbal reasoning. His Eye tracking research includes themes of Audiology, Autism, Autism spectrum disorder, Attentional control and Smooth pursuit.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Developmental psychology (40.00%)
  • Cognitive psychology (34.74%)
  • Perception (23.16%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Cognitive psychology (34.74%)
  • Developmental psychology (40.00%)
  • Eye movement (28.42%)

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

Claes von Hofsten mainly focuses on Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Eye movement, Gaze and Perception. In the field of Cognitive psychology, his study on Motor planning overlaps with subjects such as Object and Action prediction. The study incorporates disciplines such as Visual perception and Psychomotor learning in addition to Developmental psychology.

His Eye movement research integrates issues from Attentional control and Distraction. His study looks at the relationship between Gaze and fields such as Eye tracking, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His study in Perception is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Context, Dissociation, Early infancy and Communication.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Action production influences 12-month-old infants' attention to others' actions. (86 citations)
  • Action production influences 12-month-old infants' attention to others' actions. (86 citations)
  • Gaze performance in children with autism spectrum disorder when observing communicative actions. (54 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Perception

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Gaze, Eye movement, Developmental psychology, Autism and Child development. His Gaze research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Speech perception, Phonetics, Semantics, Intonation and Turn-taking. Claes von Hofsten has included themes like Visual perception and Audiology in his Developmental psychology study.

His studies in Autism integrate themes in fields like Cognitive psychology and Eye tracking. His Cognitive psychology research incorporates elements of Verbal reasoning, Joint attention, Neuroscience and Nonverbal communication. His Child development research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Motor skill, Neurotypical, Asperger syndrome, Anticipation and Motor system.
