Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Psychotherapist

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Placebo, Psychiatry, Internal medicine, Expectancy theory and Randomized controlled trial. His work deals with themes such as Anesthesia, Clinical trial, Conditioning, Acupuncture and Pill, which intersect with Placebo. His Psychiatry study which covers Meta-analysis that intersects with Adverse effect, Anxiety disorder, Reuptake inhibitor and Relative risk.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Zaleplon, Sleep onset and Eszopiclone. His Expectancy theory research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Hypnosis and Brain mapping. His research integrates issues of Psychotherapist, Developmental psychology, Personality, Clinical psychology and Sexual dysfunction in his study of Hypnosis.

His most cited work include:

  • Initial severity and antidepressant benefits: a meta-analysis of data submitted to the Food and Drug Administration. (1796 citations)
  • Components of placebo effect: randomised controlled trial in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (834 citations)
  • Response expectancy as a determinant of experience and behavior. (738 citations)

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

Irving Kirsch mainly investigates Placebo, Hypnosis, Expectancy theory, Psychotherapist and Clinical psychology. His Placebo research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Anesthesia, Internal medicine, Clinical trial, Randomized controlled trial and Psychiatry. Irving Kirsch interconnects Physical therapy and Pill in the investigation of issues within Randomized controlled trial.

The various areas that Irving Kirsch examines in his Hypnosis study include Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology, Suggestibility and Hypnotic. He works mostly in the field of Expectancy theory, limiting it down to concerns involving Cognition and, occasionally, Classical conditioning. His Psychotherapist study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cognitive therapy and Altered state.

  • Psychiatry (16.72%)
  • Randomized controlled trial (14.03%)

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

Placebo, Psychiatry, Randomized controlled trial, Internal medicine and Clinical trial are his primary areas of study. His research in Placebo intersects with topics in Expectancy theory, Anesthesia, Physical therapy and Acupuncture. His study in Expectancy theory is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Stimulus and Hypnosis.

His studies deal with areas such as Psychological intervention, Treatment Effectiveness Evaluation and Drug as well as Clinical trial.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Altered Placebo and Drug Labeling Changes the Outcome of Episodic Migraine Attacks (241 citations)
  • Altered Placebo and Drug Labeling Changes the Outcome of Episodic Migraine Attacks (241 citations)
  • Default mode network connectivity encodes clinical pain: An arterial spin labeling study (208 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Psychiatry

His primary areas of study are Placebo, Randomized controlled trial, Psychiatry, Anesthesia and Acupuncture. His Placebo study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Expectancy theory, Internal medicine, Conditioning and Physical therapy. Irving Kirsch combines subjects such as Placebo treatment, Anxiety disorder, Anxiety, Meta-analysis and Migraine with his study of Randomized controlled trial.

Irving Kirsch has included themes like Adverse effect and Clinical trial in his Psychiatry study. The Anesthesia study combines topics in areas such as Pill and Drug labeling. His work carried out in the field of Acupuncture brings together such families of science as Gastroenterology, Irritable bowel syndrome, Abdominal pain and Analgesic.
