Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

His primary scientific interests are in Developmental psychology, Episodic memory, Cognition, Neuroscience and Semantic memory. His Developmental psychology research focuses on subjects like Recall, which are linked to Phenomenon. His Episodic memory research incorporates themes from Memoria, Verbal learning, Internal medicine, Prefrontal cortex and Allele.

His Cognition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gerontology, Catechol-O-methyl transferase and Cognitive decline. The concepts of his Semantic memory study are interwoven with issues in Demography, Cognitive psychology, Implicit memory and Priming. His Neuroimaging study which covers Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative that intersects with Clinical psychology.

His most cited work include:

  • Stability, growth, and decline in adult life span development of declarative memory: cross-sectional and longitudinal data from a population-based study. (546 citations)
  • The ENIGMA Consortium: large-scale collaborative analyses of neuroimaging and genetic data (508 citations)
  • The ENIGMA Consortium: large-scale collaborative analyses of neuroimaging and genetic data (508 citations)

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

Lars-Göran Nilsson spends much of his time researching Cognition, Developmental psychology, Cognitive psychology, Episodic memory and Recall. His Cognition research incorporates elements of Gerontology and Clinical psychology. His Developmental psychology study incorporates themes from Audiology, Temperament, Verbal fluency test, Memory performance and Cognitive aging.

In his work, Explicit memory is strongly intertwined with Implicit memory, which is a subfield of Cognitive psychology. He interconnects Autobiographical memory, Semantic memory and Internal medicine in the investigation of issues within Episodic memory. His work deals with themes such as Noun and Forgetting, which intersect with Recall.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognition (39.75%)
  • Developmental psychology (39.01%)
  • Cognitive psychology (31.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2020)?

  • Dementia (15.31%)
  • Episodic memory (29.38%)
  • Cognitive psychology (31.36%)

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

Dementia, Episodic memory, Cognitive psychology, Cognition and Developmental psychology are his primary areas of study. His Dementia study incorporates themes from Prospective cohort study, Gerontology, Clinical psychology and Hazard ratio. His study looks at the intersection of Episodic memory and topics like Semantic memory with Autobiographical memory.

Cognition is a subfield of Neuroscience that he studies. The various areas that Lars-Göran Nilsson examines in his Neuroscience study include Schizophrenia and Genome-wide association study. His work carried out in the field of Developmental psychology brings together such families of science as Cognitive skill, Working memory, Cognitive reserve and Childhood memory.

Between 2013 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The ENIGMA Consortium: large-scale collaborative analyses of neuroimaging and genetic data (508 citations)
  • The ENIGMA Consortium: large-scale collaborative analyses of neuroimaging and genetic data (508 citations)
  • Genetic contributions to variation in general cognitive function: a meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies in the CHARGE consortium (N=53 949) (241 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuroscience

His scientific interests lie mostly in Dementia, Neuroscience, Episodic memory, Genome-wide association study and Gerontology. His Dementia research includes themes of Longitudinal study, Prospective cohort study, Neurology and Hazard ratio. His work on Human memory, Imaging genetics and Hippocampal formation as part of general Neuroscience study is frequently connected to Inheritance Patterns, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

Lars-Göran Nilsson merges Episodic memory with In patient in his study. His Genome-wide association study research also works with subjects such as

  • Schizophrenia and related Brain mapping, Voxel-based morphometry, Neuropsychology, Neuroimaging and Working group,
  • Genetic association that connect with fields like Complement, Genetic variants, Cognition and Synaptic plasticity. His studies deal with areas such as Alzheimer's disease and Olfaction Disorders as well as Gerontology.
