Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Psychiatry
  • Internal medicine
  • Major depressive disorder

His primary scientific interests are in Psychiatry, Psychosocial, Clinical psychology, Depression and Sex characteristics. His studies in Psychiatry integrate themes in fields like Socioeconomic status, Polymorphism and Monoamine oxidase A. His Psychosocial study incorporates themes from Injury prevention and Human factors and ergonomics.

He combines subjects such as Developmental psychology and Risk factor with his study of Clinical psychology. His Depression research incorporates elements of Serotonin transporter and Gene–environment interaction. The Sex characteristics study combines topics in areas such as Genotype and Child abuse.

His most cited work include:

  • Development of depression: sex and the interaction between environment and a promoter polymorphism of the serotonin transporter gene. (229 citations)
  • Obesity, Shame, and Depression in School-Aged Children: A Population-Based Study (224 citations)
  • Role of Monoamine Oxidase A Genotype and Psychosocial Factors in Male Adolescent Criminal Activity (200 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Clinical psychology, Psychiatry, Genotype, Developmental psychology and Psychosocial. His Clinical psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Anxiety, Gene–environment interaction, Sexual abuse, Cohort and Monoamine oxidase A. His Psychiatry research includes elements of Polymorphism and Rating scale.

His research investigates the connection with Genotype and areas like Allele which intersect with concerns in Monoamine neurotransmitter. His study in the fields of Juvenile delinquency under the domain of Developmental psychology overlaps with other disciplines such as Association and Social environment. His studies deal with areas such as Injury prevention, Sex characteristics, Socioeconomic status and Human factors and ergonomics as well as Psychosocial.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Clinical psychology (44.14%)
  • Psychiatry (32.41%)
  • Genotype (17.24%)

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

  • Clinical psychology (44.14%)
  • Genotype (17.24%)
  • Methylation (4.83%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Clinical psychology, Genotype, Methylation, DNA methylation and Monoamine oxidase A. Kent W. Nilsson studies Self report, a branch of Clinical psychology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Young adult, Adolescent alcohol, Dependent manner and Medical genetics.

His work in Methylation tackles topics such as Sexual abuse which are related to areas like Monoamine Oxidase A Gene, Genetics and Epigenetics. His Monoamine oxidase A study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Internal medicine. His work deals with themes such as Mental health and Depression, which intersect with Community based study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The increased trend of non-drinking alcohol among adolescents: what role do internet activities have? (12 citations)
  • Monoamine oxidase A genotype and methylation moderate the association of maltreatment and aggressive behaviour. (4 citations)
  • Psychotic-like experiences during early adolescence predict symptoms of depression, anxiety, and conduct problems three years later: A community-based study. (3 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Major depressive disorder

His main research concerns Clinical psychology, Genotype, DNA methylation, Methylation and Internal medicine. His research in Clinical psychology intersects with topics in Functional impairment, Community based study, Anxiety, Young adolescents and Depression. His Genotype research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Young adult, Substance abuse, Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test and Medical genetics.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Oncology, Tobacco use, Monoamine oxidase A, Aggressive behaviours and Monoaminergic in addition to DNA methylation. The various areas that he examines in his Methylation study include Bisulfite sequencing, Nucleus accumbens, Gene expression and Endocrinology. His Internal medicine research includes themes of Substance misuse and Aggression.
