Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Social psychology

Her primary areas of investigation include Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Developmental psychology, Arousal and Amygdala. Her Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Context, Long-term memory and Explicit memory. Her studies examine the connections between Cognition and genetics, as well as such issues in Social psychology, with regards to Positive memories.

Her study in the fields of Young adult under the domain of Developmental psychology overlaps with other disciplines such as Age groups and Extramural. The various areas that she examines in her Arousal study include Valence, Forgetting and Visual perception. Her research in Amygdala intersects with topics in Stimulus and Functional imaging.

Her most cited work include:

  • Memory enhancement for emotional words: Are emotional words more vividly remembered than neutral words? (651 citations)
  • Two routes to emotional memory: Distinct neural processes for valence and arousal (615 citations)
  • Remembering the Details: Effects of Emotion: (421 citations)

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

Elizabeth A. Kensinger mostly deals with Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Cognition, Valence and Young adult. Elizabeth A. Kensinger has researched Cognitive psychology in several fields, including Emotional memory, Arousal and Episodic memory. Elizabeth A. Kensinger has included themes like Recall, Affect, Forgetting, Cognitive reappraisal and Brain mapping in her Developmental psychology study.

Her research integrates issues of Context, Visual perception and Social psychology in her study of Cognition. Her research in Valence focuses on subjects like Amygdala, which are connected to Prefrontal cortex. Her Young adult study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Analysis of variance, Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Age differences and Neural recruitment.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (57.35%)
  • Developmental psychology (33.65%)
  • Cognition (25.59%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Cognitive psychology (57.35%)
  • Episodic memory (15.64%)
  • Audiology (6.64%)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Cognitive psychology, Episodic memory, Audiology, Valence and Recognition memory. Elizabeth A. Kensinger combines subjects such as Negative emotion, Arousal, Young adult and Event-related potential with her study of Cognitive psychology. Her Episodic memory research incorporates elements of Memory consolidation, Encoding, Slow-wave sleep, Sleep spindle and Polysomnography.

Her work deals with themes such as Sleep in non-human animals and Emotional perception, which intersect with Audiology. Eye movement, Resting state fMRI and Sensory system is closely connected to Amygdala in her research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Valence. Her research investigates the connection with Recognition memory and areas like Stimulus which intersect with concerns in Implicit memory, Explicit memory, Response bias and Constant false alarm rate.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Retrieval of Emotional Events from Memory (15 citations)
  • Post-Encoding Amygdala-Visuosensory Coupling Is Associated with Negative Memory Bias in Healthy Young Adults (14 citations)
  • Current understanding of fear learning and memory in humans and animal models and the value of a linguistic approach for analyzing fear learning and memory in humans (13 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Social psychology

Elizabeth A. Kensinger mainly investigates Cognitive psychology, Valence, Amygdala, Recognition memory and Episodic memory. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Context, Encoding, Arousal and Event-related potential. The various areas that Elizabeth A. Kensinger examines in her Valence study include Implicit memory, Audiology and Explicit memory.

The Amygdala study combines topics in areas such as Stressor, Prefrontal cortex and Eye movement. The concepts of her Episodic memory study are interwoven with issues in Recall, Color saturation, Negative emotion, Subjective memory and Salience. Her Emotional memory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Young adult, Resting state fMRI and Sensory system.
