Laura L. Carstensen spends much of her time researching Developmental psychology, Socioemotional selectivity theory, Positivity effect, Cognition and Cognitive psychology. Her research in Developmental psychology intersects with topics in Social relation, Interpersonal relationship and Well-being. In Socioemotional selectivity theory, Laura L. Carstensen works on issues like Social psychology, which are connected to Empirical evidence.
She works mostly in the field of Positivity effect, limiting it down to topics relating to Affect and, in certain cases, Arousal, as a part of the same area of interest. The Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Big Five personality traits and Emotional expression. Her studies deal with areas such as Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance, Erikson's stages of psychosocial development and Sociology of scientific knowledge as well as Cognitive psychology.
Laura L. Carstensen mainly focuses on Developmental psychology, Social psychology, Socioemotional selectivity theory, Cognition and Cognitive psychology. Her Developmental psychology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Affect. In general Social psychology, her work in Social relation and Social support is often linked to Social environment, Social network and Social partners linking many areas of study.
Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Recall, Social preferences, Adult development, Personality and Empirical research. Laura L. Carstensen regularly ties together related areas like Empirical evidence in her Cognition studies. Her work focuses on many connections between Younger adults and other disciplines, such as Arousal, that overlap with her field of interest in Affective forecasting.
Her primary areas of study are Socioemotional selectivity theory, Developmental psychology, Cognition, Preference and Time perspective. Her Socioemotional selectivity theory study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cognitive psychology, Risk perception and Age differences. Her Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Goal pursuit and Goal setting.
Her Developmental psychology research incorporates elements of Organizational effectiveness and Globe. Her Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Empathy, Positivity effect, Abusive supervision and Cognitive decline. Laura L. Carstensen has included themes like Social psychology, Affect, Psychological research, Young adult and Regret in her Preference study.
Laura L. Carstensen mainly investigates Socioemotional selectivity theory, Cognition, Positivity effect, Cognitive psychology and Clinical psychology. Many of her studies on Socioemotional selectivity theory apply to Physical therapy as well. In her study, Successful aging, Cognitive skill, Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance and Health and Retirement Study is strongly linked to Cognitive decline, which falls under the umbrella field of Cognition.
The subject of her Positivity effect research is within the realm of Gerontology. Her study in Cognitive psychology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Goal pursuit and Time perspective. Her Clinical psychology research includes themes of Young adult, Younger adults, Arousal and Persuasion.
