Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Psychiatry
  • Internal medicine
  • Gene

Kenneth S. Kendler focuses on Psychiatry, Twin study, Developmental psychology, Schizophrenia and Genetics. In most of his Psychiatry studies, his work intersects topics such as Clinical psychology. His Twin study study combines topics in areas such as Context, Genetic correlation, Extraversion and introversion and Gene–environment interaction.

The concepts of his Developmental psychology study are interwoven with issues in Neuroticism, Personality, Demography, Social environment and Risk factor. His research integrates issues of Bipolar disorder, Psychosis and Proband in his study of Schizophrenia. Kenneth S. Kendler interconnects Social support, Epidemiology and Etiology in the investigation of issues within Depression.

His most cited work include:

  • Lifetime and 12-Month Prevalence of DSM-III-R Psychiatric Disorders in the United States: Results From the National Comorbidity Survey (10832 citations)
  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • Genetic epidemiology of major depression: review and meta-analysis. (2259 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Psychiatry, Clinical psychology, Twin study, Genetics and Demography. All of his Psychiatry and Schizophrenia, Depression, Comorbidity, Anxiety and Substance abuse investigations are sub-components of the entire Psychiatry study. His research in Schizophrenia intersects with topics in Bipolar disorder, Psychosis and Proband.

He has included themes like Major depressive disorder, Young adult and Personality in his Clinical psychology study. Kenneth S. Kendler focuses mostly in the field of Twin study, narrowing it down to topics relating to Developmental psychology and, in certain cases, Social environment. His Demography research includes elements of Odds ratio, Offspring, Hazard ratio, Confidence interval and Genetic determinism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Psychiatry (43.39%)
  • Clinical psychology (20.35%)
  • Twin study (19.14%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Psychiatry (43.39%)
  • Clinical psychology (20.35%)
  • Demography (15.47%)

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

His primary areas of study are Psychiatry, Clinical psychology, Demography, Genome-wide association study and Substance abuse. The Psychiatry study combines topics in areas such as Young adult and Twin study. His study in Clinical psychology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Major depressive disorder, Comorbidity, Personality and Anxiety.

He focuses mostly in the field of Demography, narrowing it down to matters related to Heritability and, in some cases, Sibling. His Genome-wide association study study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Genetic correlation and Genetic association. His research in Schizophrenia intersects with topics in Bipolar disorder, Psychosis and Etiology.

Between 2015 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)
  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Contribution of copy number variants to schizophrenia from a genome-wide study of 41,321 subjects (475 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Psychiatry

Psychiatry, Clinical psychology, Genome-wide association study, Demography and Schizophrenia are his primary areas of study. Kenneth S. Kendler regularly links together related areas like Alcohol use disorder in his Psychiatry studies. Kenneth S. Kendler has included themes like Young adult, Depression, Personality and Anxiety in his Clinical psychology study.

His research integrates issues of Major depressive disorder, Bipolar disorder and Genetic association in his study of Genome-wide association study. His Schizophrenia study incorporates themes from Mania, Delusion, Psychosis and Paranoia. His Comorbidity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Prevalence of mental disorders and Linkage disequilibrium.
