Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine

Matthew B. Pontifex mostly deals with Cognition, Physical fitness, Aerobic exercise, Developmental psychology and Physical exercise. His Cognition research includes elements of Young adult, Academic achievement, Randomized controlled trial and Confounding. Matthew B. Pontifex has included themes like Cardiorespiratory fitness, Eriksen flanker task and Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance in his Physical fitness study.

His research investigates the link between Cardiorespiratory fitness and topics such as Working memory that cross with problems in Resistance training, Contingent negative variation and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. Matthew B. Pontifex combines subjects such as Neurocognitive, Exercise physiology and Error-related negativity with his study of Aerobic exercise. He interconnects Task analysis and Audiology in the investigation of issues within Developmental psychology.

His most cited work include:

  • The effect of acute treadmill walking on cognitive control and academic achievement in preadolescent children (514 citations)
  • A neuroimaging investigation of the association between aerobic fitness, hippocampal volume, and memory performance in preadolescent children (433 citations)
  • Aerobic Fitness and Cognitive Development: Event-Related Brain Potential and Task Performance Indices of Executive Control in Preadolescent Children (309 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognition, Aerobic exercise, Developmental psychology, Physical fitness and Audiology. His study in Cognition is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cognitive psychology, Cardiorespiratory fitness, Physical therapy and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His Aerobic exercise study combines topics in areas such as Obesity, Exercise physiology, Stimulus, Young adult and Neurocognitive.

His Developmental psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Working memory, Task analysis and Electroencephalography. Matthew B. Pontifex usually deals with Physical fitness and limits it to topics linked to Physical exercise and Aerobic capacity. His work carried out in the field of Audiology brings together such families of science as Anterior cingulate cortex, Error-related negativity, Brain activity and meditation and Brain mapping.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognition (60.32%)
  • Aerobic exercise (42.86%)
  • Developmental psychology (37.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Cognition (60.32%)
  • Aerobic exercise (42.86%)
  • Cardiorespiratory fitness (18.25%)

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

Matthew B. Pontifex mainly investigates Cognition, Aerobic exercise, Cardiorespiratory fitness, Developmental psychology and Cognitive psychology. His Cognition research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Clinical psychology and Audiology. His research in Aerobic exercise intersects with topics in Test, Obesity and Affect.

His Obesity study incorporates themes from Body mass index and Physical therapy, Physical strength. The study incorporates disciplines such as Physical fitness, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Brain function in addition to Cardiorespiratory fitness. His Developmental psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pedometer and Mean age.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A systematic review of physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness on P3b. (30 citations)
  • Fitness, physical activity, sedentary time, inhibitory control, and neuroelectric activity in children with overweight or obesity: The ActiveBrains project. (8 citations)
  • Preschoolers exhibit greater on-task behavior following physically active lessons on the approximate number system. (1 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Neuroscience
  • Internal medicine

Matthew B. Pontifex focuses on Cognition, Brain function, Crossover study, Cardiorespiratory fitness and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. Many of his studies on Cognition involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Audiology. The various areas that Matthew B. Pontifex examines in his Brain function study include Clinical psychology, Athletes and Neuropsychology.

Throughout his Crossover study studies, Matthew B. Pontifex incorporates elements of other sciences such as Approximate number system, Numeracy, Light intensity, Heart rate reserve and Mouth rinse. His Cardiorespiratory fitness research incorporates themes from Physical fitness, P3b, Biomarker, Physical activity interventions and Web of science. His studies deal with areas such as Alpha, Overweight, Obesity and Aerobic exercise as well as Physical medicine and rehabilitation.
