Elizabeth A. Phelps focuses on Cognitive psychology, Amygdala, Neuroscience, Fear conditioning and Extinction. Her Cognitive psychology research integrates issues from Memory consolidation, Perception, Cognition, Anxiety and Developmental psychology. Her research in Anxiety focuses on subjects like Ventromedial prefrontal cortex, which are connected to Orbitofrontal cortex.
Her Amygdala research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Stimulus, Social emotional learning, Striatum and Brain mapping. Her Neuroscience research focuses on Facial expression and how it relates to Brain damage, Amygdaloid nucleus, Emotional valence and Visual perception. The study incorporates disciplines such as Reward learning and Neuropsychology in addition to Fear conditioning.
Her primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Amygdala, Cognition and Developmental psychology. Her Cognitive psychology research includes elements of Arousal, Fear conditioning, Anxiety, Perception and Episodic memory. In her study, Associative learning is strongly linked to Classical conditioning, which falls under the umbrella field of Fear conditioning.
Her studies in Amygdala integrate themes in fields like Recall, Facial expression, Prefrontal cortex, Temporal lobe and Brain mapping. Her work in the fields of Cognition, such as Regulation of emotion, intersects with other areas such as Context-dependent memory. She has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Stimulus, Effects of stress on memory, Stressor and Reinforcement learning.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Arousal, Cognition and Memory consolidation. When carried out as part of a general Cognitive psychology research project, her work on Encoding is frequently linked to work in Intertemporal choice, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. As a part of the same scientific family, she mostly works in the field of Neuroscience, focusing on Aversive conditioning and, on occasion, Primary treatment and Appetitive conditioning.
In her work, Developmental psychology, Reinforcement, Cognitive neuroscience and Virtual reality is strongly intertwined with Anxiety, which is a subfield of Arousal. Her studies deal with areas such as Young adult and Audiology as well as Cognition. Her specific area of interest is Amygdala, where she studies Fear conditioning.
Her primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Memory consolidation, Amygdala and Striatum. Her work carried out in the field of Neuroscience brings together such families of science as Primary treatment and Aversive conditioning. Her study in the field of Encoding also crosses realms of Overexploitation.
Her Amygdala research includes themes of Extinction and Recall. As a part of the same scientific study, she usually deals with the Extinction, concentrating on Ventromedial prefrontal cortex and frequently concerns with Aversive Stimulus and Developmental psychology. Her Striatum research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Reinforcement learning, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Anxiety.
