Her main research concerns Frontotemporal dementia, Cognition, Neuroimaging, Semantic dementia and Neuroscience. Frontotemporal dementia is a subfield of Dementia that Fiona Kumfor tackles. The various areas that Fiona Kumfor examines in her Dementia study include Clinical psychology, Socioemotional selectivity theory, Social cognition and Insula.
Her Neuroimaging study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Neurodegeneration and Posterior cingulate. Her biological study deals with issues like Neuropsychology, which deal with fields such as Frontal lobe and Apathy. Her work in the fields of Neuroscience, such as Precuneus, overlaps with other areas such as Basal ganglia.
Fiona Kumfor mainly focuses on Frontotemporal dementia, Dementia, Cognition, Semantic dementia and Neuroscience. Her Frontotemporal dementia research integrates issues from Cognitive psychology, Neuroimaging and Social cognition. Her work carried out in the field of Dementia brings together such families of science as Insula, Psychiatry, Developmental psychology, Clinical psychology and Neural correlates of consciousness.
Her Cognition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Degeneration, Cohort and Cerebellar white matter. Her studies deal with areas such as Primary progressive aphasia and Audiology as well as Semantic dementia. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Neuroscience, Voxel-based morphometry is strongly linked to Atrophy.
Fiona Kumfor mainly investigates Frontotemporal dementia, Clinical psychology, Dementia, Apathy and Disease. Her Frontotemporal dementia study incorporates themes from Voxel-based morphometry, Psychiatry, Neurodegeneration, Neuroscience and Atrophy. Her work focuses on many connections between Voxel-based morphometry and other disciplines, such as Alzheimer's disease, that overlap with her field of interest in Cognition.
In Clinical psychology, Fiona Kumfor works on issues like Semantic dementia, which are connected to Progressive nonfluent aphasia, Primary progressive aphasia, Eye contact and Mentalization. Fiona Kumfor works mostly in the field of Dementia, limiting it down to topics relating to Neurology and, in certain cases, Aphasia, as a part of the same area of interest. She has included themes like Neural correlates of consciousness and Neuroimaging in her Apathy study.
Her primary areas of investigation include Frontotemporal dementia, Dementia, Apathy, Clinical psychology and Progressive nonfluent aphasia. Fiona Kumfor works mostly in the field of Frontotemporal dementia, limiting it down to concerns involving Cognition and, occasionally, Atrophy, Alzheimer's disease and Voxel-based morphometry. Her Dementia research incorporates themes from Translational research and Neuropsychological assessment.
Her work deals with themes such as Primary progressive aphasia, Anxiety, Logopenic progressive aphasia and Psychoeducation, which intersect with Apathy. Her study in Clinical psychology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Neural correlates of consciousness, Neurology, Neuroimaging and Depression. Her research investigates the link between Progressive nonfluent aphasia and topics such as Semantic dementia that cross with problems in Neuroscience.
