Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Cognitive psychology
  • Neuroscience

Daniel L. Schacter spends much of his time researching Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Neuroscience, Episodic memory and Explicit memory. His Cognitive psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Implicit memory, Prefrontal cortex, Semantic memory and Priming. His work deals with themes such as Developmental psychology and Cognitive science, which intersect with Cognition.

As a part of the same scientific family, Daniel L. Schacter mostly works in the field of Developmental psychology, focusing on Recognition memory and, on occasion, False memory. In the subject of general Episodic memory, his work in Chronesthesia is often linked to Event, thereby combining diverse domains of study. He has included themes like Social psychology and Long-term memory in his Explicit memory study.

His most cited work include:

  • The Brain's Default Network Anatomy, Function, and Relevance to Disease (6541 citations)
  • Implicit memory: History and current status. (2467 citations)
  • Priming and human memory systems (2113 citations)

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

Daniel L. Schacter mainly focuses on Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Episodic memory, Neuroscience and Developmental psychology. His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Implicit memory, Priming and Semantic memory, Explicit memory. His Implicit memory research includes elements of Response priming, Indirect tests of memory and Perception.

His Explicit memory study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Long-term memory and Amnesia. Cognition is often connected to Social psychology in his work. His Episodic memory research focuses on Cognitive science and how it connects with Cognitive neuroscience.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (59.09%)
  • Cognition (27.27%)
  • Episodic memory (23.51%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Cognitive psychology (59.09%)
  • Episodic memory (23.51%)
  • Cognition (27.27%)

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

His primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, Episodic memory, Cognition, Autobiographical memory and Developmental psychology. The concepts of his Cognitive psychology study are interwoven with issues in Mind-wandering, Social psychology and Default mode network. Daniel L. Schacter works mostly in the field of Default mode network, limiting it down to topics relating to Posterior cingulate and, in certain cases, Prefrontal cortex, as a part of the same area of interest.

His Episodic memory research also works with subjects such as

  • Memory errors together with Implicit memory and Childhood memory,
  • Everyday life most often made with reference to Cognitive science. His work in the fields of Cognition, such as Neural correlates of consciousness and Prospective memory, intersects with other areas such as Process. His Autobiographical memory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Reconstructive memory, Counterfactual thinking, Simulation hypothesis and Context.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Creative Cognition and Brain Network Dynamics (359 citations)
  • A taxonomy of prospection: Introducing an organizational framework for future-oriented cognition (232 citations)
  • Episodic Future Thinking: Mechanisms and Functions. (189 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Cognitive psychology
  • Social psychology

Cognitive psychology, Episodic memory, Developmental psychology, Cognition and Autobiographical memory are his primary areas of study. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Prefrontal cortex, Ventromedial prefrontal cortex, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Default mode network and Brain activity and meditation. Daniel L. Schacter combines subjects such as Control, Affect, Divergent thinking, Cognitive science and Semantic memory with his study of Episodic memory.

His research in the fields of Age differences overlaps with other disciplines such as Negativity effect. His research in Cognition intersects with topics in Creativity and Functional connectivity. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Traumatic stress, Stress, Simulation hypothesis and Narrative.
