Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Linguistics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognition, Cognitive psychology, Williams syndrome, Developmental psychology and Cognitive science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Face, Child development and Information processing. His studies in Cognitive psychology integrate themes in fields like Reading, Visual perception, Autism, Developmental disorder and Neuroscience.

Michael S. C. Thomas focuses mostly in the field of Williams syndrome, narrowing it down to matters related to Language development and, in some cases, Past tense, Phonology, Syntax and Language acquisition. In his study, Spatial ability, El Niño, Numerical cognition, Numero sign and Asperger syndrome is inextricably linked to Mental age, which falls within the broad field of Developmental psychology. His Cognitive science research incorporates themes from Context and Computational model.

His most cited work include:

  • Mental disorder in adults with intellectual disability. 1: Prevalence of functional psychiatric illness among a community-based population aged between 16 and 64 years. (367 citations)
  • Using developmental trajectories to understand developmental disorders. (342 citations)
  • Exploring the Williams syndrome face‐processing debate: the importance of building developmental trajectories (219 citations)

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

Michael S. C. Thomas mainly focuses on Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Developmental psychology, Cognitive science and Connectionism. His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Artificial neural network, Autism and Williams syndrome. His Cognition study focuses on Cognitive development in particular.

The concepts of his Developmental psychology study are interwoven with issues in Intervention, Down syndrome, Mental age and Vocabulary. His studies deal with areas such as Context and Neuroconstructivism as well as Cognitive science. His research integrates issues of Linguistics and Computational model in his study of Connectionism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (37.50%)
  • Cognition (30.77%)
  • Developmental psychology (25.96%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Cognition (30.77%)
  • Cognitive psychology (37.50%)
  • Developmental psychology (25.96%)

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

Michael S. C. Thomas mainly investigates Cognition, Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Association and Psychological intervention. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cognitive science and Gerontology in addition to Cognition. His Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Spatial ability, Connectionism, Cognitive training and Spatial memory.

His Developmental psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Neuroimaging and Comprehension. His Psychological intervention research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Intervention, Response to intervention and Autism. Michael S. C. Thomas studied Response to intervention and Reading that intersect with Cognitive development.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Improving Methodological Standards in Behavioral Interventions for Cognitive Enhancement (60 citations)
  • Annual Research Review: Educational neuroscience: progress and prospects. (37 citations)
  • Night-time screen-based media device use and adolescents' sleep and health-related quality of life. (31 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Linguistics

His primary scientific interests are in Cognition, MEDLINE, Cognitive psychology, Perspective and Cognitive science. Michael S. C. Thomas combines Cognition and Cohort in his studies. His work deals with themes such as Self report, Pupil and Gerontology, which intersect with MEDLINE.

His Cognitive psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Psychological intervention, Intervention, Connectionism, Reading and PsycINFO. Perspective combines with fields such as Control, Knowledge management, Face, Foundation and Best practice in his investigation. Michael S. C. Thomas applies his multidisciplinary studies on Cognitive science and Life span in his research.
