Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Statistics

Daniel J. Levitin mainly investigates Cognitive psychology, Music psychology, Perception, Cognition and Musical. Daniel J. Levitin undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Cognitive psychology and Social neuroscience through his works. His Music psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Music and emotion, Music therapy, Musical form, Everyday life and Functional neuroimaging.

His studies deal with areas such as Musicality, Big Five personality traits, Physical education and Music perception as well as Music and emotion. His Cognition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Insula and Active listening. His Musical research focuses on Perceptual memory and how it connects with Echoic memory.

His most cited work include:

  • A critical role for the right fronto-insular cortex in switching between central-executive and default-mode networks (1773 citations)
  • The rewards of music listening: Response and physiological connectivity of the mesolimbic system (657 citations)
  • Social modulation of pain as evidence for empathy in mice. (569 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cognitive psychology, Musical, Music psychology, Cognition and Perception. Daniel J. Levitin interconnects Movement, Musical form, Rhythm and Everyday life in the investigation of issues within Cognitive psychology. His work deals with themes such as Developmental psychology, Autism, Speech recognition and Popular music, which intersect with Musical.

Daniel J. Levitin works mostly in the field of Music psychology, limiting it down to topics relating to Music and emotion and, in certain cases, Musicology and Jazz, as a part of the same area of interest. His Cognition study introduces a deeper knowledge of Neuroscience. Daniel J. Levitin has researched Perception in several fields, including Communication, Gesture and Echoic memory.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (43.69%)
  • Musical (30.10%)
  • Music psychology (24.27%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2020)?

  • Musical (30.10%)
  • Music psychology (24.27%)
  • Music and emotion (10.68%)

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

Musical, Music psychology, Music and emotion, Cognitive psychology and Rhythm are his primary areas of study. Daniel J. Levitin has included themes like Well-being and Medical education in his Musical study. His Music psychology study combines topics in areas such as Neurochemical, Cognitive science, Cognition and Clinical psychology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Emotional expression, Expression, Perception and Communication in addition to Music and emotion. His Cognitive psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Neurophysiology and Empirical research. In the field of Rhythm, his study on Central pattern generator overlaps with subjects such as Front crawl.

Between 2013 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Reducing Social Stress Elicits Emotional Contagion of Pain in Mouse and Human Strangers (126 citations)
  • This is Your Brain on Music: Understanding a Human Obsession (88 citations)
  • The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload (76 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Statistics
  • Neuroscience

His primary areas of investigation include Music and emotion, Musical, Musicality, Perception and Music psychology. His studies in Musical integrate themes in fields like Aesthetics and Nothing. His Musicality research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cognitive psychology, Time perception, Cognition, Rhythm and Cognitive science.

His research in Perception intersects with topics in Valence, Big Five personality traits, Social psychology and Personality. His research on Music psychology often connects related topics like Entrainment.
