2010 - Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
2008 - William James Fellow Award, Association for Psychological Science (APA)
2006 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
1995 - Fellow of John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation
1992 - Troland Research Awards, United States National Academy of Sciences For her rigorous empirical and theoretical analysis of visual cognition, in which understanding of normal function and analysis of neurological deficits illuminate and strengthen one another.
Martha J. Farah spends much of her time researching Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Perception, Developmental psychology and Visual perception. Her Cognitive psychology research includes elements of Visual agnosia, Mental image, Representation, Frontal lobe and Semantic memory. She combines subjects such as Cognitive science and Information processing with her study of Cognition.
Her research in Perception intersects with topics in Facial recognition system, Temporal cortex, Mental representation and Communication. Her Child development study in the realm of Developmental psychology interacts with subjects such as Socioeconomic status. As a part of the same scientific family, she mostly works in the field of Face perception, focusing on Artificial intelligence and, on occasion, Pattern recognition.
Her main research concerns Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Developmental psychology, Perception and Neuroscience. Her work in Cognitive psychology tackles topics such as Visual agnosia which are related to areas like Agnosia. Cognition is often connected to Clinical psychology in her work.
In the field of Developmental psychology, her study on Child development overlaps with subjects such as Socioeconomic status. Her research investigates the connection with Perception and areas like Communication which intersect with concerns in Artificial intelligence, Facial recognition system and Face perception. Martha J. Farah interconnects Cognitive science and Functional neuroimaging in the investigation of issues within Cognitive neuroscience.
Martha J. Farah mainly focuses on Socioeconomic status, Developmental psychology, Cognition, Cognitive psychology and Neuroscience. Her Developmental psychology study incorporates themes from Working memory, Family income, Meta-analysis, Cognitive neuroscience and Mental health. Her Cognitive neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Human brain, Neurocognitive, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Brain mapping.
Martha J. Farah is studying Prefrontal cortex, which is a component of Cognition. Martha J. Farah usually deals with Cognitive psychology and limits it to topics linked to Visual perception and Pure alexia, Dyslexia, Mental image, Cognitive neuroscience of visual object recognition and Word recognition. In general Neuroscience, her work in Neuroethics is often linked to History linking many areas of study.
Martha J. Farah mostly deals with Cognition, Developmental psychology, Socioeconomic status, Cognitive psychology and Cognitive science. Her Cognition study is mostly concerned with Prefrontal cortex and Working memory. Her work deals with themes such as Transcranial direct-current stimulation and Audiology, which intersect with Prefrontal cortex.
Within one scientific family, Martha J. Farah focuses on topics pertaining to Meta-analysis under Developmental psychology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Demography, Methylphenidate and Stimulant. Her Cognitive psychology research incorporates themes from Cognitive neuroscience of visual object recognition, Functional brain, Mental image, Scientific reasoning and Visual perception. Her Cognitive science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Empirical research, Neuroethics, Neuroscience research and Scientific communication.
