Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Statistics
  • Genetics

Her primary scientific interests are in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Neuroscience, Heritability and Twin study. Her Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Schizophrenia, Polymorphism, Hippocampal formation, Genetic association and Genetic architecture. Her Neuroscience research incorporates elements of Autism and Disease.

Her Heritability research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Working memory, Fractional anisotropy, Demography, Intelligence quotient and Genetic variation. She studied Twin study and Developmental psychology that intersect with Personality, Cognition, Extraversion and introversion and Big Five personality traits. The Human brain study combines topics in areas such as Caudate nucleus, Basal ganglia, Putamen and Diffusion imaging.

Her most cited work include:

  • Discovery of the first genome-wide significant risk loci for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. (644 citations)
  • Common genetic variants influence human subcortical brain structures. (610 citations)
  • Common genetic variants influence human subcortical brain structures. (610 citations)

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

Margaret J. Wright mainly investigates Heritability, Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Developmental psychology and Neuroscience. Her work carried out in the field of Heritability brings together such families of science as Fractional anisotropy, Diffusion MRI, Genetic variation and Demography. Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Quantitative trait locus, Allele, Gene and Polymorphism are among the areas of Genetics where Margaret J. Wright concentrates her study.

The concepts of her Genome-wide association study study are interwoven with issues in Bioinformatics, Hippocampal formation, Genetic association, Computational biology and Genetic architecture. Her studies in Developmental psychology integrate themes in fields like Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Intelligence quotient and Personality. Her study focuses on the intersection of Neuroscience and fields such as White matter with connections in the field of Artificial intelligence and Corpus callosum.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Heritability (23.39%)
  • Genetics (20.69%)
  • Genome-wide association study (21.14%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Genome-wide association study (21.14%)
  • Heritability (23.39%)
  • Cognition (14.39%)

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

Her main research concerns Genome-wide association study, Heritability, Cognition, Genetics and Clinical psychology. Her study on Genome-wide association study is covered under Single-nucleotide polymorphism. Her Heritability research incorporates themes from Imaging genetics, Genetic variation, Cortex and Human Connectome Project.

Her Cognition study combines topics in areas such as Genetic correlation, Neuroimaging and Medical genetics. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Neuroticism, Conscientiousness, Disease and Major depressive disorder, Depression. Margaret J. Wright interconnects Reliability, Human brain and Genetic architecture in the investigation of issues within Evolutionary biology.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Discovery of the first genome-wide significant risk loci for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. (644 citations)
  • Genome-wide association meta-analysis in 269,867 individuals identifies new genetic and functional links to intelligence (403 citations)
  • Study of 300,486 individuals identifies 148 independent genetic loci influencing general cognitive function (219 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Statistics
  • Internal medicine

Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic association, Genetic architecture and Single-nucleotide polymorphism are her primary areas of study. Her Genome-wide association study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Meta-analysis, Quantitative trait locus, Neuroscience, Physiology and TAS1R2. She has included themes like Testosterone, Sex hormone-binding globulin and Androgen in her Genetics study.

Her study on Genetic association also encompasses disciplines like

  • Brain morphometry together with Genome, Neuroplasticity, Copy-number variation and Oncology,
  • Schizophrenia and related Major depressive disorder, Mood disorders, Diffusion MRI, Corpus callosum and Fractional anisotropy. The various areas that Margaret J. Wright examines in her Genetic architecture study include Cerebral cortex, Statistics, Cortex and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Her research integrates issues of Taste, Taste receptor, Sweetness and TAS1R3 in her study of Single-nucleotide polymorphism.
