The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuroscience
  • Cognition
  • Psychiatry

Meng-Chuan Lai mainly investigates Autism, Developmental psychology, Autism spectrum disorder, Clinical psychology and Cognition. His work deals with themes such as Sex characteristics and Neuroscience, which intersect with Autism. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Coping, Physiology and Amygdala.

His research integrates issues of Vulnerability, Audiology and Child development in his study of Autism spectrum disorder. His Clinical psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Psychiatry, Intellectual disability and Protective factor. Social cognitive theory and Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule is closely connected to Autism-spectrum quotient in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Cognition.

His most cited work include:

  • A meta-analysis of sex differences in human brain structure (551 citations)
  • Sex/Gender Differences and Autism: Setting the Scene for Future Research (424 citations)
  • A Behavioral Comparison of Male and Female Adults with High Functioning Autism Spectrum Conditions (347 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Autism, Autism spectrum disorder, Developmental psychology, Clinical psychology and Neuroscience. His Autism research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Audiology and Cognition, Neuropsychology. Meng-Chuan Lai has included themes like Cognitive psychology and Sex characteristics in his Cognition study.

His research in Autism spectrum disorder intersects with topics in White matter, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Neuroimaging, Neurology and Cohort. His Developmental psychology course of study focuses on Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Connectome. He interconnects Young adult, Psychiatry, Intellectual disability and Autistic traits in the investigation of issues within Clinical psychology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Autism (134.22%)
  • Autism spectrum disorder (86.22%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Autism, Autism spectrum disorder, Clinical psychology, Developmental psychology and Neuroscience. In general Autism, his work in Neurotypical is often linked to Association linking many areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Autism spectrum disorder brings together such families of science as Audiology, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Neurodevelopmental disorder, Neuroimaging and Cortex.

His Clinical psychology study combines topics in areas such as Young adult, Physical health, Gender related and Autistic traits. His Developmental psychology research integrates issues from Stereotype and Functional magnetic resonance imaging. He combines subjects such as Social adjustment, Nosology, Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, Anxiety and Coping with his study of Intellectual disability.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Large-scale analyses of the relationship between sex, age and intelligence quotient heterogeneity and cortical morphometry in autism spectrum disorder. (48 citations)
  • Evidence-based support for autistic people across the lifespan: maximising potential, minimising barriers, and optimising the person-environment fit. (30 citations)
  • Gender differences in self-reported camouflaging in autistic and non-autistic adults: (27 citations)

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

  • Neuroscience
  • Schizophrenia
  • Psychiatry

His main research concerns Autism, Clinical psychology, Autism spectrum disorder, Autistic traits and Developmental psychology. His Autism study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Coping, Neuroscience and Default mode network. The Coping study combines topics in areas such as Social adjustment, Interpersonal relationship and Intellectual disability.

His Autism spectrum disorder research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Brain anatomy, Clinical heterogeneity, Neuroimaging, Intelligence quotient and Mentalization. His Autistic traits study incorporates themes from Odds ratio, Empathy, Young adult and Psychiatric diagnosis. His Developmental psychology research incorporates elements of Neural correlates of consciousness, Theory of mind, Functional magnetic resonance imaging and Neuropsychology.
