Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Developmental psychology
  • Neuroscience

Her primary areas of study are Developmental psychology, Temperament, Personality, Personality development and Surgency. Her specific area of interest is Developmental psychology, where she studies Aggression. Her work deals with themes such as Big Five personality traits, Extraversion and introversion, Cognition, Negative affectivity and Child development, which intersect with Temperament.

Her Cognition research incorporates themes from Basic science, Cognitive psychology, Behavioral neuroscience and Self-control. Her Personality research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Control, Clinical psychology, Cognitive neuroscience and Childhood development. As a member of one scientific family, she mostly works in the field of Surgency, focusing on Test validity and, on occasion, Psychometrics.

Her most cited work include:

  • Investigations of temperament at three to seven years: the Children's Behavior Questionnaire. (1733 citations)
  • Temperament and personality: origins and outcomes. (1222 citations)
  • Short-term meditation training improves attention and self-regulation (1099 citations)

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

Mary K. Rothbart spends much of her time researching Developmental psychology, Temperament, Cognitive psychology, Personality and Cognition. Her studies deal with areas such as Cognitive development and Social psychology, Affect as well as Developmental psychology. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Surgency, Psychometrics, Clinical psychology, Personality development and Big Five personality traits.

Her research integrates issues of Neuroimaging, Neuroscience, Control and Attentional control in her study of Cognitive psychology. Her Personality research includes themes of Psychopathology and Childhood development. Her studies examine the connections between Cognition and genetics, as well as such issues in Cognitive science, with regards to Socialization.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Developmental psychology (56.22%)
  • Temperament (43.78%)
  • Cognitive psychology (25.81%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Developmental psychology (56.22%)
  • Temperament (43.78%)
  • Cognitive psychology (25.81%)

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

Mary K. Rothbart mainly investigates Developmental psychology, Temperament, Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience and Personality. She interconnects Longitudinal study and Methylation in the investigation of issues within Developmental psychology. Mary K. Rothbart combines subjects such as Executive attention, Psychometrics, Clinical psychology and Middle childhood with her study of Temperament.

Her work carried out in the field of Cognitive psychology brings together such families of science as Brain state, Cognition and Mechanism. Many of her research projects under Personality are closely connected to Human development and PsycINFO with Human development and PsycINFO, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Mary K. Rothbart focuses mostly in the field of Personality development, narrowing it down to topics relating to Competence and, in certain cases, Child development.

Between 2010 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Developing Mechanisms of Self-Regulation in Early Life (318 citations)
  • Becoming Who We Are: Temperament and Personality in Development (279 citations)
  • Temperament, Attention, and Developmental Psychopathology (265 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Developmental psychology

Her primary areas of study are Temperament, Developmental psychology, Clinical psychology, Self-control and Personality. Her work is dedicated to discovering how Temperament, Cognitive psychology are connected with Action and Cognitive science and other disciplines. Her research in Developmental psychology intersects with topics in Longitudinal study and Personality Assessment Inventory.

Her Clinical psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Relaxation, Schizophrenia, Early adolescents and Neuroimaging. Her work in Self-control covers topics such as Self-management which are related to areas like Socialization, Emotional control and Attentional control.
