Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Neuroscience, Amygdala, Cerebral blood flow, Cognitive psychology and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. Håkan Fischer has included themes like Monocular and Classical conditioning in his Neuroscience study. His Amygdala study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Basal ganglia, Facial expression and Habituation.

His Cerebral blood flow research focuses on Anxiety and how it connects with Audiology. His research integrates issues of Working memory, Spatial memory, Neurology and Dopamine in his study of Cognitive psychology. The various areas that Håkan Fischer examines in his Functional magnetic resonance imaging study include Hippocampus and Functional imaging.

His most cited work include:

  • A functional MRI study of human amygdala responses to facial expressions of fear versus anger. (555 citations)
  • Differential prefrontal cortex and amygdala habituation to repeatedly presented emotional stimuli. (439 citations)
  • Common Changes in Cerebral Blood Flow in Patients With Social Phobia Treated With Citalopram or Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (418 citations)

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

Neuroscience, Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Cognition and Audiology are his primary areas of study. In his research on the topic of Neuroscience, Anxiety and Central nervous system is strongly related with Cerebral blood flow. His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Emotion recognition, Classical conditioning and Facial expression.

He combines subjects such as Valence, Arousal, Neuroticism, Face perception and Neural correlates of consciousness with his study of Developmental psychology. Psychiatry is closely connected to Clinical psychology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Cognition. Håkan Fischer has researched Audiology in several fields, including Sleep deprivation, Sleep in non-human animals, Anger and Neuroimaging.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience (37.96%)
  • Cognitive psychology (22.22%)
  • Developmental psychology (24.07%)

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

  • Neuroscience (37.96%)
  • Cognition (18.52%)
  • Audiology (16.20%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuroscience, Cognition, Audiology, Emotion recognition and Positivity effect. His work on Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Visual cortex, Prefrontal cortex and Neurotransmitter as part of general Neuroscience research is often related to Linear regression, thus linking different fields of science. His study on Brain activation is often connected to Moment as part of broader study in Functional magnetic resonance imaging.

His Cognition research incorporates themes from Schizophrenia, Psychosis, Aggression, Clinical psychology and Nasal administration. He usually deals with Audiology and limits it to topics linked to Anger and Happiness and Amygdala. His Emotion recognition study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cognitive psychology, Oxytocin and Randomized controlled trial.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mood impairment is stronger in young than in older adults after sleep deprivation (17 citations)
  • Sleep restriction caused impaired emotional regulation without detectable brain activation changes—a functional magnetic resonance imaging study (8 citations)
  • Improvement in indices of cellular protection after psychological treatment for social anxiety disorder (7 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine

Håkan Fischer mostly deals with Positivity effect, Audiology, Cognition, Sleep deprivation and Social psychology. Håkan Fischer undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Audiology and Brain activity and meditation through his works. His studies in Cognition integrate themes in fields like Young adult, Affect and Clinical psychology, Mood.

Sleep deprivation is closely attributed to Anger in his study. In general Social psychology, his work in Moderation, Extraversion and introversion and Social relation is often linked to Face and Physical attractiveness linking many areas of study. His Executive functions research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Emotional dysregulation, Valence, n-back, Adverse effect and Sleep loss.
