Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Developmental psychology
  • Social psychology

David C. Geary focuses on Cognition, Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology, Learning disability and Cognitive development. He works in the field of Cognition, focusing on Working memory in particular. His Developmental psychology study combines topics in areas such as Test, Social psychology, Sexual selection, Intelligence quotient and Arabic numerals.

His studies in Cognitive psychology integrate themes in fields like Intellectual ability, School age child and Fluency. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Psychological intervention, Knowledge level, Mathematical learning, Developmental Dyscalculia and Achievement test. His research integrates issues of Folk psychology, Cognitive science, Problem of universals, Evolutionary psychology and Modularity of mind in his study of Cognitive development.

His most cited work include:

  • Mathematical disabilities: Cognitive, neuropsychological, and genetic components. (859 citations)
  • Mathematics and Learning Disabilities (857 citations)
  • Male, Female: The Evolution of Human Sex Differences (807 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Developmental psychology, Cognition, Cognitive psychology, Social psychology and Sexual selection. As part of the same scientific family, David C. Geary usually focuses on Developmental psychology, concentrating on Intelligence quotient and intersecting with Achievement test. His work investigates the relationship between Cognition and topics such as Cognitive science that intersect with problems in Evolutionary psychology.

His Cognitive psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Folk psychology, Spatial ability, Working memory, Dyscalculia and Fluency. Sexual selection is frequently linked to Mate choice in his study. His Mathematical ability study improves the overall literature in Mathematics education.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Developmental psychology (41.61%)
  • Cognition (35.09%)
  • Cognitive psychology (21.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cognition (35.09%)
  • Developmental psychology (41.61%)
  • Cognitive psychology (21.12%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognition, Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology, Cognitive science and Mathematics education. He combines subjects such as Context, Academic achievement, Sexual selection and Human–computer interaction with his study of Cognition. David C. Geary has included themes like Longitudinal study, Sex characteristics, Resting state fMRI, Neuroimaging and Intelligence quotient in his Developmental psychology study.

His work carried out in the field of Cognitive psychology brings together such families of science as Spatial ability, Working memory, Value, Cardinality and School entry. His Cognitive science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both SPARK, Adaptive functioning, Unification and Numerical cognition. His work in Numerical cognition tackles topics such as Neuroscience of multilingualism which are related to areas like Cognitive development.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Gender-Equality Paradox in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education: (265 citations)
  • Early Conceptual Understanding of Cardinality Predicts Superior School-Entry Number-System Knowledge: (35 citations)
  • Efficiency of mitochondrial functioning as the fundamental biological mechanism of general intelligence (g) (30 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Social psychology
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Cognition, Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Mathematical ability and PsycINFO. His Cognition study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Science education, Sexual selection, Social stress, Unification and SPARK. His Cognitive psychology research includes elements of Value, Cardinality, Centrality and Behavioural sciences.

David C. Geary works in the field of Developmental psychology, namely Educational psychology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cognitive development, Competence and School entry in addition to Mathematical ability. His work deals with themes such as Social psychology and Arabic numerals, which intersect with School entry.
