Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Social psychology
  • Developmental psychology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Developmental psychology, Cognition, Gerontology, Successful aging and Social psychology. His work on Perceived control, Internal-External Control and Adult development as part of general Developmental psychology research is frequently linked to Terminal and Chronological age, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Cognition research incorporates elements of Longitudinal study, Latent growth modeling, Perception and Cohort.

His Gerontology study incorporates themes from Psychosocial, Demography, Quality of life and Dementia. His Dementia research integrates issues from Cross-sectional study and Socioeconomic status. He combines subjects such as Life satisfaction, Cognitive domain and Probability of survival with his study of Successful aging.

His most cited work include:

  • Regional Brain Changes in Aging Healthy Adults: General Trends, Individual Differences and Modifiers (2049 citations)
  • Time-Structured and Net Intraindividual Variability: Tools for Examining the Development of Dynamic Characteristics and Processes (253 citations)
  • Self-perceptions of aging predict mortality and change with approaching death: 16-year longitudinal results from the Berlin Aging Study. (201 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Developmental psychology, Cognition, Gerontology, Demography and Successful aging. The Developmental psychology study combines topics in areas such as Longitudinal study, Big Five personality traits, Social psychology, Personality and Perception. His work on Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, Cognitive skill and Episodic memory as part of general Cognition study is frequently linked to PsycINFO, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Denis Gerstorf works mostly in the field of Gerontology, limiting it down to topics relating to Cohort and, in certain cases, Cohort study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Life satisfaction and Psychosocial. His studies in Life satisfaction integrate themes in fields like Perceived control, Context and Subjective well-being.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Developmental psychology (55.52%)
  • Cognition (26.62%)
  • Gerontology (26.95%)

Denis Gerstorf mostly deals with Developmental psychology, Demography, Clinical psychology, Neuroticism and Context. Denis Gerstorf has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Mental health, Loneliness, Cognition and Perception. His study in Cognition is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Life satisfaction and Carbohydrate metabolism.

Denis Gerstorf has included themes like Psychosocial, Socioeconomic status and Morning in his Demography study. His Neuroticism research includes themes of Big Five personality traits and Conscientiousness. His Context research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Social psychology and Verbal fluency test.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Development of loneliness in midlife and old age: Its nature and correlates. (24 citations)
  • The measurement of within-person affect variation. (12 citations)
  • Trajectories of Big Five Personality Traits: A Coordinated Analysis of 16 Longitudinal Samples (11 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Social psychology
  • Internal medicine

Denis Gerstorf mainly focuses on Developmental psychology, PsycINFO, Integrative data analysis, Big Five personality traits and Socioeconomic status. His Developmental psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cognitive skill, Time perspective and Physical health. His PsycINFO study spans across into areas like Adult development, Physiology, Life satisfaction, Carbohydrate metabolism and Insulin.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Neuroticism and Clinical psychology in addition to Big Five personality traits. His Socioeconomic status research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mental health, Sexual orientation, Empirical research and Loneliness. The concepts of his Demography study are interwoven with issues in Social psychology, Personality and Extraversion and introversion.
