Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Neuroscience

His primary scientific interests are in Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience, Communication, Perception and Body movement. Harold Bekkering interconnects Motor system, Cognitive imitation, Cognition and Developmental psychology in the investigation of issues within Cognitive psychology. His Cognition research includes elements of Arabic numerals and Numeral system.

The Functional magnetic resonance imaging, Functional imaging, Psychophysics and Mirror neuron research he does as part of his general Neuroscience study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Systems neuroscience, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Communication study combines topics in areas such as Stimulus, Object, Saccadic masking and Finger movement. His Perception study incorporates themes from Semantics and Priming.

His most cited work include:

  • Cortical Mechanisms of Human Imitation (2194 citations)
  • Joint action: bodies and minds moving together (1151 citations)
  • Rational imitation in preverbal infants (807 citations)

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

Harold Bekkering mainly focuses on Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Perception, Communication and Cognitive science. The Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Imitation, Social psychology, Embodied cognition, Motor system and Semantics. His Motor system study deals with the bigger picture of Neuroscience.

His study in Cognition is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Developmental psychology, Perspective and Motor control. His research in Communication intersects with topics in Stimulus, Visual perception and Gaze. Harold Bekkering combines subjects such as Context and Artificial intelligence with his study of Cognitive science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (47.39%)
  • Cognition (26.83%)
  • Perception (24.04%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Cognitive psychology (47.39%)
  • Perception (24.04%)
  • Developmental psychology (13.59%)

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

His primary areas of study are Cognitive psychology, Perception, Developmental psychology, Audiology and Electroencephalography. His work on Mentalization as part of general Cognitive psychology study is frequently linked to Process, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Perception study deals with Embodied cognition intersecting with Representation and Motor skill.

His Developmental psychology research incorporates elements of Facilitation, Neurocognitive, Arousal and Finger tapping. His Electroencephalography research incorporates themes from Electrophysiology and Motor learning. His Eye tracking study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Comprehension and Communication.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Diminished socially selective neural processing in 5-month-old infants at high familial risk of autism. (38 citations)
  • Unravelling the contributions of motor experience and conceptual knowledge in action perception: A training study. (36 citations)
  • Do you do as I do? Young toddlers prefer and copy toy choices of similarly acting others (33 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Neuroscience

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Association, Social psychology, Cognition, Cognitive psychology and Developmental psychology. His Association study spans across into subjects like Accent, Similarity, Resting state fMRI, Tractography and Frontal Pole. His Social psychology research integrates issues from Young adult and Embodied cognition.

His Cognition study results in a more complete grasp of Neuroscience. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surprise, Motor cognition, Adaptation and Internal model. The study incorporates disciplines such as Motor system, Cognitive neuroscience, Action observation and Mirroring in addition to Developmental psychology.
