Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cognition
  • Surgery

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cognition, Neuroscience, Episodic memory, Dementia and Alzheimer's disease. His Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Developmental psychology and Cognitive psychology. Lars Bäckman has included themes like Memoria, Verbal learning, Verbal fluency test and Depression in his Developmental psychology study.

His work deals with themes such as Recall, Free recall, Recognition memory, Clinical psychology and Semantic memory, which intersect with Episodic memory. His Dementia research incorporates themes from Cohort study, Gerontology, Psychiatry, Prospective cohort study and Pediatrics. His Alzheimer's disease study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Memory disorder, Cognitive disorder, Cholinergic neuron and Degenerative disease.

His most cited work include:

  • Mild cognitive impairment--beyond controversies, towards a consensus: report of the International Working Group on Mild Cognitive Impairment. (3383 citations)
  • A 2 year multidomain intervention of diet, exercise, cognitive training, and vascular risk monitoring versus control to prevent cognitive decline in at-risk elderly people (FINGER): a randomised controlled trial (1270 citations)
  • Sirolimus (rapamycin)-based therapy in human renal transplantation: similar efficacy and different toxicity compared with cyclosporine. Sirolimus European Renal Transplant Study Group. (794 citations)

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

Lars Bäckman spends much of his time researching Cognition, Developmental psychology, Neuroscience, Internal medicine and Dementia. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cognitive psychology and Clinical psychology. Lars Bäckman combines subjects such as Recall, Free recall, Audiology, Memoria and Verbal fluency test with his study of Developmental psychology.

His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Surgery. His study in Dementia is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Alzheimer's disease, Psychiatry and Gerontology. As part of his studies on Episodic memory, he often connects relevant areas like Semantic memory.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognition (33.69%)
  • Developmental psychology (23.65%)
  • Neuroscience (20.87%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (20.87%)
  • Cognition (33.69%)
  • Dementia (18.86%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Neuroscience, Cognition, Dementia, Cognitive decline and Episodic memory. His Neuroscience research focuses on Catechol-O-methyl transferase and how it connects with Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and Dopaminergic. His work carried out in the field of Cognition brings together such families of science as Developmental psychology and Audiology.

The concepts of his Developmental psychology study are interwoven with issues in Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Association. The various areas that he examines in his Dementia study include Cognitive training, Randomized controlled trial, Gerontology and Clinical psychology. His Episodic memory research incorporates themes from Hippocampal formation, Cognitive psychology, Semantic memory and Long-term memory.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A 2 year multidomain intervention of diet, exercise, cognitive training, and vascular risk monitoring versus control to prevent cognitive decline in at-risk elderly people (FINGER): a randomised controlled trial (1270 citations)
  • Vascular hippocampal plasticity after aerobic exercise in older adults (158 citations)
  • Relationships of peripheral IGF-1, VEGF and BDNF levels to exercise-related changes in memory, hippocampal perfusion and volumes in older adults (130 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Cognition

Neuroscience, Cognition, Dementia, Cognitive decline and Developmental psychology are his primary areas of study. Lars Bäckman works in the field of Cognition, namely Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance. Lars Bäckman has included themes like Observational study, Diffusion MRI, Randomized controlled trial, Clinical psychology and Physical therapy in his Dementia study.

His Cognitive decline research is multidisciplinary, relying on both White matter, Hyperintensity, Gerontology and Cognitive impairment. His Developmental psychology research integrates issues from Dorsum and Amygdala. His studies deal with areas such as Long-term memory and Semantic memory as well as Episodic memory.
