Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Social psychology

Jean Decety spends much of his time researching Cognitive psychology, Empathy, Neuroscience, Perception and Cognition. His Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Action, Social cognition, Theory of mind, Functional neuroimaging and Brain mapping. The study incorporates disciplines such as Developmental psychology, Feeling and Cognitive neuroscience in addition to Empathy.

His research investigates the connection between Neuroscience and topics such as Precentral gyrus that intersect with issues in Somatosensory system. His work carried out in the field of Perception brings together such families of science as Artificial neural network, Middle temporal gyrus and Neuroimaging. As part of the same scientific family, Jean Decety usually focuses on Cognition, concentrating on Imitation and intersecting with Child development.

His most cited work include:

  • The functional architecture of human empathy (1744 citations)
  • Functional anatomy of execution, mental simulation, observation, and verb generation of actions: a meta-analysis. (1216 citations)
  • Meta-analytic evidence for common and distinct neural networks associated with directly experienced pain and empathy for pain (1206 citations)

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

Jean Decety mostly deals with Empathy, Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Neuroscience and Cognition. His Empathy study incorporates themes from Clinical psychology, Prosocial behavior and Psychopathy. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Social neuroscience, Social cognition, Perception, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Theory of mind.

His Perception research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Neuroimaging, Communication and Action. His research investigates the connection between Developmental psychology and topics such as Insula that intersect with problems in Anterior cingulate cortex and Amygdala. In general Neuroscience study, his work on Mirror neuron, Parietal lobe, Brain mapping and Posterior parietal cortex often relates to the realm of Motor imagery, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Empathy (41.33%)
  • Cognitive psychology (37.86%)
  • Developmental psychology (23.99%)

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

  • Empathy (41.33%)
  • Social psychology (15.61%)
  • Cognitive psychology (37.86%)

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

His main research concerns Empathy, Social psychology, Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology and Cognition. His work on Empathic concern as part of general Empathy study is frequently linked to Context, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work on Social decision making as part of general Social psychology research is often related to Collectivism, Political radicalism, Collective action and Narrative structure, thus linking different fields of science.

His work carried out in the field of Cognitive psychology brings together such families of science as Developmental cognitive neuroscience, Functional neuroimaging, Social neuroscience and Psychopathy. Jean Decety has included themes like Biophilia hypothesis and Normative in his Developmental psychology study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Longitudinal sample, Subject and Moral behavior.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Machine learning of brain gray matter differentiates sex in a large forensic sample. (56 citations)
  • The development of children's preferences for equality and equity across 13 individualistic and collectivist cultures. (28 citations)
  • Empathy in Medicine: What It Is, and How Much We Really Need It (15 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Social psychology
  • Neuroscience

Jean Decety spends much of his time researching Social psychology, Empathy, Cognition, Cognitive psychology and Developmental psychology. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Social psychology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Morality, and often Social preferences, Harm and Ventromedial prefrontal cortex. Jean Decety brings together Empathy and Context to produce work in his papers.

His Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Developmental cognitive neuroscience, Functional neuroimaging and Neurolaw, Social neuroscience. His study in Functional neuroimaging is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Determinism, Cultural neuroscience, Social cognition, Neurocognitive and Empathic concern. His Developmental psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Temporoparietal junction, Normative and Biophilia hypothesis.
