Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Gene

Ian J. Deary focuses on Genome-wide association study, Cognition, Genetics, Intelligence quotient and Developmental psychology. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Internal medicine, Genetic association, Bioinformatics and Medical genetics. His Cognition research incorporates elements of Dementia, Cognitive decline and Audiology.

His Intelligence quotient research includes elements of Test, Cognitive psychology, Demography and Cohort study. His Cohort study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gerontology and Cohort. In Developmental psychology, Ian J. Deary works on issues like Personality, which are connected to Clinical psychology.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression (1131 citations)
  • Modulation of genetic associations with serum urate levels by body-mass-index in humans (1089 citations)
  • Intelligence and educational achievement (1067 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Cognition, Developmental psychology, Genome-wide association study, Gerontology and Genetics. His Cognition study deals with Clinical psychology intersecting with Neuroticism and Psychiatry. His Developmental psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Association and Personality.

His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Internal medicine and Genetic association. His Gerontology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Socioeconomic status, Dementia and Cohort study. His Cohort study research integrates issues from Demography and Cohort.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognition (29.10%)
  • Developmental psychology (15.39%)
  • Genome-wide association study (13.46%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cognition (29.10%)
  • Genome-wide association study (13.46%)
  • Genetics (12.85%)

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

His main research concerns Cognition, Genome-wide association study, Genetics, DNA methylation and Internal medicine. His Cognition research incorporates themes from Demography, Association, Clinical psychology and Cognitive decline. Ian J. Deary usually deals with Cognitive decline and limits it to topics linked to Ageing and Gerontology.

As part of the same scientific family, Ian J. Deary usually focuses on Genome-wide association study, concentrating on Genetic association and intersecting with Meta-analysis. His biological study deals with issues like Epigenetics, which deal with fields such as Disease. The various areas that he examines in his Internal medicine study include White matter, Hyperintensity, Oncology and Cardiology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression (1131 citations)
  • Novel genetic associations for blood pressure identified via gene-alcohol interaction in up to 570K individuals across multiple ancestries (799 citations)
  • Genome-wide meta-analysis of depression identifies 102 independent variants and highlights the importance of the prefrontal brain regions (458 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Disease

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, DNA methylation, Genetic association and Cognition. His study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Schizophrenia, Oncology, Medical genetics, Internal medicine and Genetic architecture. His DNA methylation study also includes

  • Epigenetics that connect with fields like Cohort,
  • Ageing which connect with Confounding.

His Genetic association research includes themes of Bioinformatics, Mood, Meta-analysis, COPD and Major depressive disorder. The concepts of his Cognition study are interwoven with issues in Demography, Gerontology, Clinical psychology and Cognitive decline. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Gerontology, focusing on Dementia and, on occasion, Educational attainment.
